Fish farming is one of the important occupations practiced by the people of Assam. The state of Assam which is criss-crossed by many highly productive natural and manmade wetlands like khal, beel, pukhuri, dong, swamps, tanks, reservoirs etc. covering an area of 1748 sq. km, has recorded a remarkable increase in fish production from 1.90 lakh tones in 2007-08 to 3.06 lakh in 2016-17 which is higher than that of the country's increase in production during the same period (Baruah, et. al 2018). A systematic and optimum utilization of the floodplain wetlands in the state possesses significant scope for socio-economic advancement of the people being dependent on the practice of fish farming (Kakati, et. al 2018). This study has been conducted to explore the trend of fish production in the concerned villages as well as the significance of fish production in sustaining the rural livelihood.
