Abstract: The study was carried out to assess livelihood status and the challenges facing fishermen in Ada district. One hundred fishermen were randomly selected covering the study area for a period of eight months for data collection purposes. Data were collected from the fishermen through some selected tools such as individual questionnaire interview, key informant interview, focus group discussion and physical observation during fishing and marketing. Livelihood condition of the Ada district community was presented in terms of family size and type, occupational status, educational status, housing condition, and annual income. Among the fishermen, 30 % had no education, 52 % basic education and 18 % SHS education. It was found out that 65 % of the fishermen families were extended and 35 % of the families were nuclear. The average rate member of fishers family was 10. Major constraints of the fishermen livelihood were identified as, lack of appropriate management techniques, water quality control, runoff control and improper record keeping. Poor site selection was linked with restriction of pond drying due to underground water trend. For the development of the livelihood of the fishermen, expansion of education, loan facilities from government agencies and improved management of the local resources are recommended.
