Abstract:

The study compiled and documented various indigenous techniques of controlling water pH, white feaces problem in shrimp, mortality, fish-lice and use of natural fish attractant along with the socio-economic background of the involved farmers and fishers in selected blocks of 24 Parganas (South) district, West Bengal. The survey was conducted through stratified multiple random sampling procedure in which 66 farmers from 19 potential fish farming villages of two blocks were investigated. This indigenous knowledge being eco-friendly, locally available and cost effective can be successfully used as a part of modern scientific techniques after scientific refinements.
