Leadership in Dissemination of Aquaculture Technologies to the Appropriate Stakeholders and Target Groups for Improving their Livelihoods

Carp and Tilapia Hatchery/Seed Production System Development for Promoting Commercial Farming of these species

  • Formerly responsible for giving technical assistance and support through his institute (BFRI) to the stakeholders in developing commercial carp and tilapia farming in Bangladesh particularly carp and tilapia hatchery/seed production system designing, operation, brood stock management; replacement and stock improvement aspects and dissemination of improved breeds to the target groups etc.

Improved Aquaculture Technology Dissemination and Training Program through Funding of a Commercial Bank

  • Directly responsible for coordinating a two years (January 2004 – December 2005) pilot program in two administrative units belonging to Mymensingh district of Bangladesh, through funding of a commercial bank ie. Bangladesh Agricultural Bank Ltd. for dissemination of a number of improved aquaculture technologies viz. i. Improved nursery management of carp, tilapia and catfish species; ii. Polyculture of carps in perennial ponds iii. Monoculture of catfish in perennial ponds etc. in the rural ponds.  A total of 200 poor farmers were involved to get all necessary technical supports including training and adoption of these technologies in their household ponds. The overall input costs of such program are being born as credit with minimum interest by the bank.  In the first year of the program, it has shown an excellent example of marginal poor farmers’ involvement with technology-based fish farming to minimize their poverty with the technical assistance of a public sector institute and credit support of a commercial bank.

Adaptive Research Program under Aquaculture Development Project

  • As a Project Coordinator, He hasbeen involved  (July 2001-June 2005) with the Adaptive Research Component of IFAD funded Aquaculture Development Project (AqDP) of the Department of Fisheries (DoF), Bangladesh to conduct on-farm trials and disseminate a number of aquaculture viz. i. Improved carp/prawn nursery management; ii. Polyculture of carps with catfish/shrimp; iii. Integrated rice-fish culture;  iv. Integrated chicken-fish  culture in 8 districts viz. Faridpur, Magura, Jessore, Jhenaidah, Chuadanga, Meherpur, Kustia and Rajbari of the South-west part of Bangladesh. The main objective of this project has been targeted to create employment generation and improve the livelihood of the resource poor people.

Fish and Rice Productivity Enhancement Research in the Flood prone Ecosystem

  • Responsible for coordinating the IFAD funded collaborative project of WorldFish Center, BFRI, BRRI and Proshika on “Fish and Rice Productivity Enhancement Research in the Floodprone Ecosystem”. The project was implemented for years (April 1997 – March 2000) in four floodprone locations (at least 2 sites in each location) of Bangladesh viz. Brahman Baria, Kuliarchar, Narail and Mukatagacha in view of testing the possibility of adopting polyculture technology (with short cycled fish species) during flooding time in the artificially made enclosures in those areas involving the beneficiaries around the water bodies.  Each partner organization had different roles and responsibilities in the project. Overall technical assistance was provided by the WorldFish Center, BFRI and BRRI. Proshika (NGO) organized the beneficiary group formation and their sharing arrangement. Impact of this approach was extremely useful as a model for harvesting floodwaters and improving the livelihoods of the poor people living around the project sites.

Farming System Research and Development (FSRD) Program

  • Under Agriculture Research and Management Project (ARMP) of the World Bank, FSRD programs have been implemented (July 1996 – June 2000) in Jessore, Tangail, Noakhali, Gazipur and Sylhet districts of Bangladesh. A number of proven aquaculture technologies along with homestead agriculture and livestock approaches have been disseminated in those areas involving a large number of rural farmers. BFRI was responsible for implementation of aquaculture based farming system component of the program, where he had a role of overall coordination.

Dissemination and Transfer of Aquaculture Technologies through GOs and NGOs under Other Programs

  • During 1994 – 1996, rice fish farming technology was disseminated and transferred to a large number of marginal farmers throughout the greater Tangail and  Mymensingh districts through 22 GOs and NGOs.
