The present study was conducted in Jorhat district of Assam, India to study the socio-economic and socio-personal characteristics of the paddy cum fish farmers and their perception on fish species diversity and its conservation in the district. Eighty respondents were selected through snow ball sampling technique and data were collected using structured interview schedule. The study revealed that the majority (63.75%) of the respondents belonged to young age out of which 92.50 per cent were male. Majority (62.60%) of the respondents had medium (0.40 ha to 0.88 ha) level of area under paddy cum fish culture and majority (70.00%) of respondents had medium level (Rs. 11054.08 to Rs. 24703.42) of annual income from paddy cum fish culture. The study also revealed that majority of the respondents (57.50%) perceived that the fish catch has decreased as compared to the catch 5-10 years before whereas only 18.75 per cent of them felt that there is no change in fish catch. Majority (52.50%) of the respondents had negative perception on the statement that fishing should be practiced when fish attain marketable size.
