This conference volume "Sustainable Inland Fisheries Management in Bangladesh" contains 37 papers presented at the workshop. These paper are divided into five sections namely Introduction, Institutional issues, the CBFM approach and case studies OLP 2 model and case studies and issues in other fishery enhancements
Contains abstracts of 17 presented papers and reports of four working groups of this workshop, held on 10-13 August 1983 at Los Baños, Laguna, Philippines, which brought together Philippine researchers who conducted an economic analysis of tilapia operations.
This book chapter discusses the identified problems at the level of the fish, the pond and the farm. Such areas as food safety, diversificaiton, development of IAA systems interdisciplinary research as a tool are elaborated, with conclusion by inferring on the development of fishponds in farming systems.
Fisheries sector in India has made rapid strides in recent years. Its role in increasing food supply, generating job opportunities, raising nutritional level and earning foreign exchange has been continuously increasing. However, this sector did not receive adequate attention from the social scientists to understand its various socio-economic dynamics. This publication is an outcome of the research project on "Strategies and options for increasing and sustaining fisheries and aquaculture production to benefit poor households in Asia" in which India is one of the partners.
The last three decades have witnessed dramatic changes in the structure of supply and demand for fish, especially in Asia. This WorldFish research study sponsored by the Asian Development Bank focussed on nine developing countries – Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam, all active players in the transformation of global fish supply and demand. This document is the appendix to the main study.
The paper discusses the status of freshwater aquaculture, and the productivity and cost effectiveness of alternative technologies in the major fish producing countries in Asia, such as Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. The analysis is based on field survey data collected by the WorldFish Center and its partner research institutes, and supplemented by secondary information. The paper adopts descriptive techniques to compare the performance of each technology across the countries in terms of productivity, cost effectiveness and profitability.
The paper introduces two spatial systems of demand equation models that are variants of the Linear Approximate to Almost Ideal Demand Systems (LA/AIDS) with habit formation. Specifically, the first model incorporates spatial lag of the quantity demanded in the LA/AIDS and the second model incorporates spatial lag of budget shares. An empirical application using fish expenditure allocation data from the Philippines showed that the two models performed better compared to the static LA/AIDS.
The project is intended to assist the Chilean Government to strengthen its activities in fisheries development, particularly in the southern area of the country which is in need of improved economies.
Rice farming covers nearly one-third of the arable land of Asia. The study shows results that are useful for policymakers wishing to promote new diversification opportunities in the crop sector. It describes some of the complexities in understand farming households and farm labor use and how people make decisions on what crops to grow, how to allocate family labor and how best to feed the family. The study goes beyond fish farming in rice fields to include the role of naturally occurring aquatic organisms in rice fields such as frogs, snails and wild fish.
