Abstract—Pond fish culture can become an important element of income generation activities in rural development programs. A survey was performed at Kotalipara upazila, Gopalganj to analyze fish culture system especially culture methods, stocking density, feeding and relative profitability during April to September 2008. It was observed that 64% of the total farmers were practicing carp polyculture whereas 17% and 19% farmers were cultivating their ponds with pangus monoculture and tilapia and carp polyculture respectively. The average stocking density was found 10378 fry/ha for polyculture and 14466 fry/ha for pangus monoculture. The average doses of Urea, TSP and MP used by the farmers for mixed culture were 361 kg, 340 kg and 133 kg per ha per year respectively. The commercial fish feed used for mixed culture was the highest in Kalabari that was 250 kg followed by 200 kg in Radhaganj and 170 kg in Sadullapur per hectare per year. In case of mixed culture, Benefit Cost Ratio (BCR) was the highest in Sadullapur which was 3.47and BCR was 4.05, the highest in Radhaganj for pangus culture. The present study highlights the development of pond fish production through grassroots level organization.
