Summary/Recommendations/Objectives:

The Department of
Fisheries in Thailand has exceptional opportunities for
the development of both inland and brackish-water fisheries. Thailand has
a large number of freshwater fishes and a freshwater shrimp which appear very
promising for intensive culture in ponds and reservoirs. Certain of
these may prove to be more productive and more efficient than species cultured
elsewhere in ponds. Research in fisheries in Thailand can be very productive of
information valuable not only to Thailand but to much of the rest
of the world as well. The Department has a limited number of well-trained
fisheries biologists - many more are needed. The Thailand Department of
Fisheries with its present personnel and facilities has developed a sound basis
for fisheries management in certain areas and has conducted some very creditable
research in freshwaters and brackish-waters. The suggestions and
criticisms submitted above are made with the hope that they will be valuable
in furthering the program of the Department.
