Production And Returns From The Commercial Production Of Fish In Arkansas During 1966

Commercial fish farming is the fastest growing industry in the field of agriculture in Arkansas. Due to its fast growth, allied industries have not kept pace. Part of the difficulty has been the lack of knowledge in the right places as this industry has developed. To collect statistics on this ballooning industry, a meeting between interested agencies was held at Stuttgart, Arkansas. At this meeting a questionnaire was developed with the idea of programming the information for IBM storage. The results of the questionnaire are discussed in the paper, the information received was expanded to cover the nonresponders. It is the express purpose of this paper to present an accurate estimate of the 1966 commercial fish production in the State of Arkansas. An industry as young as this one with a value of $9,165,000 is worth keeping tabs on.
