Abstract:
Adoption of scientific practices in shrimp farming is related to psychological, social, economic, physical and technical aspects of the farmers, which influence the overall development of farmers. This study was undertaken in North Konkan region of Maharashtra to find the extent of adoption of improved farming practices and constraints faced by the shrimp farmers while adopting improved farming practices. A total of 53 shrimp farms were randomly selected for this study. The data were collected by employing pre-tested interview schedule. Descriptive score sheets for each of the recommended practice was constructed and adoption of improved aquaculture practices was classified in three categories. The results revealed quite high extent of adoption for some of the practices such as farm design and construction (81.13%), pond preparation pre and post stocking management (77.36%), site selection (69.81%), etc, while medium adoption (50.94%) was found in health management category among the shrimp farmers.
