Fisheries extension service in India

Bhatia, D (1958) Fisheries extension service in India. In: Fisheries of the west coast of India, 1 October 1958, Calicut.



The principles of extension have been practised for many years in countries with a highly developed commercial fishing industry. In this country however, it is a pioneer venture, with few guide lines to go upon. Fisheries Extension Programme is being organised here, for the first time, with due consideration of the administrative and technical requirements of different States and regions. ' Fisheries' being a State subject, the State Fisheries Departments are responsible for all aspects of fisheries development work, including fisheries extension in connection with inland and onshore fisheries. As a 'concurrent' responsibility of the Central Government, however, the Central Fisheries Research Stations have been undertaking a major part of fisheries research and investigations.
