A problem-solving model for the production of home-made prawn feeds — A case study

Gupta, Jancy (1994) A problem-solving model for the production of home-made prawn feeds — A case study. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 128 . pp. 12-14.



A wide gap exists between research findings and end users in the fisheries sector. The quality of a good technology is that it should be triable in field at a small scale, should earn good profit in comparison to existing practices, must be compatible with socio-cultural values and beliefs and should be simple and observable type. Extension researchers have developed different models for the linkage between research and practice. One of the best models is the problem solving model, which starts with the person who has a problem either with research or innovation. A farmer will need information to solve his problem. A part of the information will come from the experience of the farmers in a particular farming system and other part will come either from the existing research findings or from new research carried out to solve the problem. So technology should be developed keeping in view the problems, values and socio-economic levels of fishermen.
