Abstract

Research into the bicycle and motor-cycle traders of St John's market is largely complete. The cycle traders have decided to form the "Retail Fish Traders Society of Shri Lanka'' in association with the "Association of Shri Lankan Fisheries Cooperatives". The programme should now concentrate on developing a strategy for wider dissemination of the insulated fish storage box and improving methodologies for understanding informal fish marketing systems. A number of recommendations are offered to achieve these objectives. Potential post-harvest activities in Andra Pradesh were reviewed. Production of Maldive fish for the Indian markets looks promising and a strategy for implementation is recommended. Efforts to assist other fish marketing activities in the region (ie, cycle traders, head-loaders and beach seiners) should proceed with caution. Clarity of objective setting and careful targeting of interventions is essential among this fragile community.
