Abstract

The purpose of this book is to assimilate and present some of the available information on the application of the scientific method to fish farming research. Emphasis is give to conducting research on the production of fish in earthen ponds and to identifying and solving farmers' problems. The book also includes a discussion of some of the social science aspects of aquacultural research, such as administration, staff motivation, and accountability. While not an intrinsic part of the scientific method, these people-related factors often determine the effectiveness of its application.
