Fishing and Fish Survival in Dry Season Waterbodies.
This sub-project investigated the types of habitats used by fish to survive over the dry season period, and the weights of fish surviving, in the presence of normal fishing activites. The work was done to determine the relative importance of dry-season survivors to the breeding stocks responsible for the recruitment at the start of each new flood year. The field work was undertaken in a hydrologically modified river floodplain in Bangladesh over the 1995/96 dry season, from the start of the kua and katha fishing season in November 1995, until the end of the dry season in May 1996.
