More about fisheries extension

Fisheries extension has an important role to play in the transfer of technology from classrooms and laboratories to the real world. Fisheries in the developed countries are already reaping the benefits. In India too fisheries extension services have been initiated keeping the small scale fisheries sector and the rural population in mind. The idea behind such services is to help in the development of the rural poor who are very much dependent upon fishing or fish related activities. Considering that prospects in the fishing industry are too uncertain and fishing disasters are too common like, failure of fish to appear in a certain season, spoilage of the whole catch, failure of fishing gear, unusual weather, etcetera, the fisheries extension services provide a ray of hope to many who make a living depending upon the fishing industry.
