Abstract:

The present study was carried out in Dharwad and Belagavi districts of North Karnataka to study the constraints in production, consumption and marketing of fish. For this purpose, multistage random sampling procedure was adopted for the selection of the ultimate unit of samples. The data was collected from 60 selected fish farmers, 60 selected fish consumers and 30 market functionaries during the period 2018-19. Garrett’s ranking technique was used to analyze the data. The results revealed that the lack of training facility, non-availability of quality fingerlings, water scarcity is some of the problems faced by the farmers in fish production. Market distances, price variation, non-availability of fresh fish were the major problems faced by the consumers of fish. Stiff competition, high bargaining, non-availability of proper storage facility are the major problems faced by the market functionaries in marketing of fish in the study area.
