Maharashtra is one of the important state with respect to fisheries considering its vast fisheries resources. Several fisheries development programmes are implemented in the state for development of inland fisheries. The DoF officials are striving hard for development of fisheries in the state. The DoF officials face constraints and these can differ as per water body and the type of fisheries being practiced there. Present study was carried out with the objective of assessing the constraints faced by the DoF officials in the Vidarbha region of Maharashtra. A total of 48 constraints were categorized under seven heads - ‘Extension and Training’ (08), ‘Administrative & Management’ (11), ‘Technical’ (06), ‘Input Supply’ (06), ‘Financial’ (06), ‘Communication and Human Relations’ (07) and ‘Social’ (04). Information was collected from 32 DoF officials from 11 districts of Vidarbha region of Maharashtra. The responses were statistically analyzed using weighted average technique and Friedman test. Maximum severity score was 12.8 and minimum was 0. The results revealed that, administrative and management constraints were severe with score 8.63/10. All other constraints had medium score.
