Abstract

Generally in fisheries in India, the linkage among research ,extension and clients is very weak and the reason behind it still remains unexplored. Poor linkage between research and extension is one of the causes for the failure as it hinders the required ex-change of information, knowledge and resource among the actors in the technology transfer system. Linkages between research and extension system have potential to make relevant fisheries technologies feasible and accessible to different categories of fishermen of different hydro climatic zone. Keeping the above facts, the present study attempts to explore the present linkage pattern existing among research and extension system. The study was carried out in the Ernakulam district of Kerala state in India, The sample consisted of 40 researchers from a fisheries research organisation ,40 ex-tension personnel from state department of fisheries, Agency for Development of Aquaculture (ADAK), Brackish water Fish Farmers Development Agency (BFDA) and Co– operative Federation for Fisheries Development Ltd( MATSYAFED). It was no-ticed that 47.50 % of the researchers had medium level of linkage with extension per-sonnel followed by 35.00 per cent with high and 17.50 per cent with low level of link-age. The paper highlights the frequency of linkage and also the socio personable vari-ables contributing to the linkage.
