Abstract

This study aimed at analysing fish farming system in the Jordan Valley (JV).The study examined the present position of the fish farming for small and large scale fish farmers in the JV.


Descriptive and analytical statistical methods were applied. The results showed that the major challenges and constraints faced by fish farmers were high cost of feed, weak co-operative, low price offered by traders, lack of technical knowledge and extension services, and limited access to credits.


Therefore, the study recommended strategies that can lead to an improvement in the income of farmers including strengthening the existing fish farmer’s cooperative in order to organize the farmers, purchasing inputs by bulk, marketing as a group, and providing fish farmers with training in conjunction with the National Center for Agricultural Research and Extension (NCARE) specialists.
