Inland Fishery Enhancements

Tomi Petr (Editor)
Synopsis This document brings together the 28 papers presented at the Expert Consultation on Inland Fishery Enhancements, held in Dhaka, Bangladesh from 7 to 11 April 1997. The Expert Consultation was jointly organized by FAO and the Department for International Development of the United Kingdom and was hosted by the Government of Bangladesh. The major objective of the Expert Consultation was to promote better understanding of how various factors must fit together for successful implementation of inland fisheries enhancement programmes. Accordingly, the papers span a broad range of topics technical, socio-economic, cultural and administrative. Techniques, geographic constraints, problems of information gathering and monitoring, and genetics are addressed. Because of its relative importance as an enhancement technique, stocking received much attention; areas discussed include strategies, modelling and prediction of results, health management and fitness of stocked fish as well as stocking experiences by type of water body. Cage culture—its importance, promotion through extension and limitations—is also considered. Other papers cover social and economic benefits and their distribution, Institutions and self and participatory management. Country reviews dealing very broadly with enhancements are also included. This FAO Fisheries Technical Paper is a companion to the Report of the Expert Consultation on Inland Fishery Enhancements, FAO Fisheries Report No. 559, which deals with the administrative aspects of the meeting and sets out its conclusions and recommendations.
