Dynamics Of The Floodplain Fisheries Of The Zambezi And Chobe Floodplain, Zambezi Region, Namibia

ABSTRACT Floodplain fisheries are typically multi-species and in most cases harvested with a variety of gears. In the upper- Zambezi, artisanal gillnet fishers mainly target three cichlids: Oreochromis andersonii, Oreochromis macrochir and Coptodon rendalli. However, their abundance is declining because of increased fishing pressure and their stocks are becoming vulnerable to overfishing. The principal aim of this PhD thesis was to assess the fish population dynamics in a highly variable syst...

Assessing The Current Status Of Local Floodplain Fisheries In The Okavango River, Kavango East Region, Namibia

ABSTRACT Globally, floodplains are acknowledged as hydrologically important, environmentally sensitive, and ecologically productive ecosystems that perform several natural functions. They provide both cultural and natural services that are of great value to society (Peel, 2012). Flooding occurs naturally along river’s and is an integral part of a healthy watercourse. It is believed that flooding may nurture life in and around rivers as the waters transport nutrient-rich sediments that contr...

Relationship Between Fish Farming Enterprise Productivity Training Programme And Adoption Of Inland-Based Pond Fish Farming In Meru South Sub-County, Kenya

ABSTRACT Inland-based fish farming in Kenya continues to draw enormous financial support by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Development under the Economic Stimulus Programme. The Fish Farming Enterprise Productivity Programme (FFEPP) entails the production of fish in a managed environment in marine and freshwater systems for food and commercial purposes. In-land based pond fish farming has been hampered by low level of fish farming, abandonment of ponds, and inadequate tr...

COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE PERFORMANCE OF PURSE SEINE AND DRIFT GILL TECHNOLOGIES AMONG ARTISANAL MARINE FISHERS IN THE CENTRAL REGION OF GHANA

ABSTRACT This study compares the performance of two predominantly employed marine fishing technologies (purse seine and drift gill net) along the coastal stretch of central region in Ghana. Against this backdrop, productivity and technical efficiency differentials of the purse seine and drift gill net technologies is assessed. Factors delimitating fishers from achieving the maximum attainable output levels were also modeled to quantify their effect on inefficiency. A simple random sampling te...

Factors That Determine Farmers’ Access And Utilisation Of The Information And Communication Technology Provided By The Department Of Agriculture In Bahati Division, Nakuru North District,

ABSTRACT Limited access to accurate and timely information by farming communities is perceived as a major drawback in the development of agriculture in Kenya. Subsequently, the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries (MoALF) has promoted the integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) to improve farmers‟ access to information and rapidly transform the delivery of agricultural extension services to them. The initiatives promoted include; mobile telephony, web b...

The Role Of Ngos In Lobbying And Advocacy For Market Access By Smallholder Farmers: A Case Of Mkuranga District

ABSTRACT Traditionally many NGOs have been supporting farmers to increase agricultural production, but farmers are facing another set of challenges especially of markets and marketing. Farmers are now expected to produce for market, but they lack access to reliable markets. Based on this ground, the study was conducted in communities of Mkuranga District to assess the role of NGOs in lobbying and advocacy for market access by smallholder farmers. The study objectives were: (i) to establish th...

Aspects Of The Structure And Sustainability Of The Fisheries In The Cross River Estuary Of Nigeria-The Role Of Community-Based Management

ABSTRACT This study focused on aspects of the structure and sustainability of the fisheries in the Cross River estuary with a view to addressing the unsustainable fishing activities in the Cross River estuary. The physicochemical characteristics of water were analyzed in order to determine the quality of water and health status of fishes in the study area. These included surface temperature, pH, DO, turbidity, salinity, alkalinity, phosphate and nitrates. The catch rates and catch composition...

Downscaling Climate Change Information Using An Ensemble Of Regional Climate Models For Agricultural Planning: A Case Study Of Tana River County, Kenya

ABSTRACT The truncated ecosystems of the Tana River County are highly vulnerable to climate change and variability due to their low adaptive capacities and high dependence on climate sensitive resources. Inadequacy of long term climate information is a serious constraint for long-term planning for enhanced food security and minimization of the adverse impacts of climate change and variability. This study was motivated by the need to downscale climate information using modelling procedures ba...
