FISHER!ES DEVELOPMENT iIN ASIAN COUNTRIES, 1977.
Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka are each, in their different ways, endeavouring to improve their fisheries and establish fishing cooperatives, Many drawbacks have to be overcome: the impoverished state of the people's standards of living and the development of exports from their countries. Asian governments and international organizations are providing aid and technical expertise; but much time-and investment will be needed to improve the livelihoods of the countless families who depend upon fish catches from the waters
and seas surrounding their countries.
