Bio-Economics of Scampi (Macrobrachium Rosenbergii) Polyculture in Selected Ponds at Namkhana Block in South 24 Parganas District of Coastal West Bengal Over the Year 2014
Abstract: For the coastal region aquaculture prawn farming will remain an important part of the rural economy. The consumption pattern and its market is mainly based upon the local market within a radius of 50 kms. In South 24 Parganas, farmers turned to prawn culture when frequent disease occurrence forced them towards stopping of shrimp production due to its high economic risk factor. Despite the risk involved, prawn farming yields higher net profits than most other occupations and farmers rarely subsidize their income with other activities. The targeted quality measures, application of proper culture techniques, export policy promotion, adequate quality control mechanism aimed to marketing strategy along with product promotion, and sustainable market price, sufficient supply of institutional credit and such other base facilities are the important factors for sustainable development and long term viability of prawn farming industry. If effective management strategies are being adopted and government intervention be in tune then certainly the employment generation will take place.
