The major objective of the book was to promote better understanding of how various factors must fit together for successful implementation of inland fisheries enhancement programmes. Accordingly, the papers span a broad range of topics: technical, socio-economic, cultural and administrative. Techniques, geographic constraints, problems of information gathering and monitoring, and genetics are addressed. Because of its relative importance as an enhancement technique, stocking received much attention; areas discussed include strategies, modelling and prediction of results, health management and fitness of stocked fish as well as stocking experiences by type of water body. Cage culture: its importance, promotion through extension and limitations is also considered. Other paper cover social and economic benefits and their distribution, institutions and self and participatory management. Country reviews dealing very broadly with enhancements are also included.
