The study was conducted in Balikuda, Biridi, Erasama, Jagatsinghpur, Kujanga, Naugaon, Raghunathpur and Tirtol blocks of Jagatsinghpur district. Both purposive and multistage random sampling methods were adopted for selection of the district, gram panchayat, village and respondents. A total of 180 numbers of respondents were selected for the purpose of the investigation. Based on the descriptive statistics, most of the respondents had medium knowledge about the general pond requirement and manuring and fertilization of the culture pond and harvesting.
