Abstract

Prawn farming is a potential area of income generation for women in fishing villages. Observations indicate that women in small scale prawn farming households do have involvement in the traditional system. They also play an important role in the management of other activities such as livestock rearing and vegetable cultivation in their farms. Given more information and training they can be usefully involved in the adoption of the technology and also management of the farms.
