Abstract

The study was conducted in North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal. It was found that majority of the fish
farmers (50.8%) had the medium level of knowledge regarding scientific fish culture practices. The highest extent of
knowledge was observed in the names of some aquatic weeds (95.83%), and lowest was observed in the minimum
depth of water required for fish culture and the time gap required between manure application and stocking of fish
seed (26.67%). The path analysis indicated that innovative proneness was the most potent variable in effecting the
knowledge of fish farmers positively.
