South Asian small reservoir fisheries are culture-based. In this study, an analytical model is developed that can be used to estimate the potential yield from such fisheries, and to explore options in their management. Sub-models for growth, mortality, costs and revenues are combined in a length-structured model of a small reservoir fishery. The optimal stocking and harvesting of perennial reservoirs are also investigated and management guidelines developed.
