The UK Overseas Development Administration commissioned this report within its Fisheries Management Science Programme to evaluate floodplain stock enhancement. Floodplains fisheries are complex systems and the release of reared fish to augment natural production is a comparatively recent activity. This report aims to draw together relevant project experience and current understanding of floodplain systems in a bid to improve the capability of institutions enhancing floodplain fisheries. This includes large-scale floodplain stock enhancement projects from Bangladesh, reservoir stocking projects from Asia and a habitat restoration project from Bangladesh.
