Abstract:
India contributes about 7.7% to the global fish production and country ranks 4th in global exports of fish products. Fisheries sector has contributed about 1.24% to the national gross value added (GVA) and about 7.28% of the agricultural GVA in 2018-19. The sector envisioned to increase the farmers’ income through enhancement of production and productivity. The present study was undertaken to analyse the price spread and marketing efficiency in marketing of inland fish in Vijayapura and Bagalkote districts of Northern Dry Zone of Karnataka. The study was based on primary data and the simple random sampling procedure was adopted to choose the inland fish farmers and market intermediaries. Three marketing channels were identified in the study area. Among the three marketing channels, channel-I (producer-retailer-consumer) showed lower price spread (Rs.38.5/kg) and the highest marketing efficiency index (1.85).
