This study was conducted to observe the aquaculture status of pabda (Ompok pabda
) at northern region of Bangladesh. A total of 60 randomly selected farmers were interviewed from eight upazilla of Dinajpur district. Results indicate that pabda fish has been commonly cultured as pabda with carp and gulsha; pabda with carp and pabda with carp and tilapia in polyculture system over the study area. Both of private and leased (~100 thousand BDT/ha/yr) ponds are used for pabda polyculture. Farmers applied lime (275 ± 3.91 kg/ha), cow dung (1900 ± 121.34 kg/ha), urea (60 ± 2.86 kg/ha) and TSP (37 ± 2.08 kg/ha) for pond preparation and management of carp and pabda polyculture system. The highest fish production (4718 ± 73 kg/ha/yr) was reported in Carp-Pangas-Tilapia. Despite of the lowest production (3176± 54 kg/ha/yr) from Carp-Pabda-Gulsha polyculture, this polyculture system provided the highest profit (2, 33,889 ± 4,793 BDT/ha/yr). In contrast, Carp-Pangas-Tilapia provided the lowest profit (1, 20,238 ± 5,708 BDT/ha/yr). Good profit from pabda with carp and gulsha was likely associated with better market price and demand of pabda and gulsha in the study area. Overall, the study indicates that pabda polyculture is more profitable and is promising in the study area.Related Graphics: Click here for more related graphics:
