Abstract
The present study was conducted to examine the production performance, yield gaps and the constraints faced by the fish farmers in Manipur. In order to achieve the stipulated objectives, 100 fish farmers wereselected randomly from Thoubal district of Manipur. The farmers were divided into two categories on the basis of fish stocked area. The Category-I comprised of the farmers having stocked area less than one hectare and Category-II consist of the farmers having stocked area of one hectare and above. The results revealed that the Category-I fish producers were more efficient as compared to Category-II farmers as far as realized yield of fish was concerned. The index of realized potential yield was found to be 62.70 and 42.08 per cent for Category-I and II farms respectively. This shows that Category-I have scope to increase the actual farm yield by 37.3 per cent. Similarly, 57.92 per cent scope was there to increase the actual farm yield in Category-II farmsif the sample farmers adopt the package of practices followed by the research farm.The farmers faced problems on account of non-availability of seeds, manure, fertilizers, high cost of labour, marketing of fish, and inadequate credit. Keeping in view the constraints faced by the respondents it seems that the fish farming in the state is not conducive to the interest of the farmers.
