A proactive approach to documentation and information dissemination
has characterised the BOBP's work from the very first phase. A
visually appealing and professionally designed newsletter (Bay of
Bengal News), systematic preparation and production of technical
reports on all the aspects of BOBP work, a well- equipped library,
photo documentation, impactful audio-visuals, video films, posters
and comic books, CD-ROMs of the entire print output - together,
these constitute a valuable body of knowledge. The Information
service has powered the BOBP's success and longevity, and also
strengthened interest worldwide on small-scale fisherfolk
communities in the Bay of Bengal.
All the BOBP publications from 1979 to December 2000 are now available
in a set of CD-ROMS and also on “onefish” website (http://www.onefish.org/id/3232). Publications
of BOBP from January 2001 onwards shall also be on online shortly.
