Keywords: Periphyton-based aquaculture | net return | Bangladesh

The study evaluates the production practice and relative profitability of periphyton-based aquaculture both on-station and on-farm situation. The findings of this study are that with relatively lower production cost, this technology yields better than that of existing fish production practice. The net return was estimated 24086 Taka ha 1 on-farm and 33306 Taka ha -1 on-station from periphyton-based aquaculture for three months while it was 9796 Taka ha -1 on farm and 16744 Taka ha -1 on-station without this technology. The study also confirmed that it is an economically viable technology of fish production and the adopters could get better yield and net return from adopting such technology if positive steps undertaken for extension.
