Farmers' guidebook on pond fish culture (in Bangla) uri icon


  • This guidebook details the technical steps to culturing fish in homestead ponds in Bangladesh. It is targeted at hilsa fishers in rural Bangladesh, who often have ponds where they can culture fish and fulfil their livelihood needs yet have insufficient knowledge about fish culture. The aim of the guidebook is to support fishers to develop an alternate income source and help them cope with the seasonal ban on hilsa fishing imposed by the government. The guidebook was developed as part of the USAID-funded Enhanced Coastal Fisheries in Bangladesh (ECOFISH-Bangladesh) project being implemented by WorldFish and the Department of Fisheries, Bangladesh
