Objective: The aim of this project is to provide quantitative evidence about the use or non-use of the finished research results in the Agricultural Research, Education and Extension Organization. This study, however, will determine the most important reasons for applying or not applying research projects according to researchers’ opinions. At present, an annual average of more than 2000 research projects is executed in the Institutes and research centers affiliated with the organization, but with almost little exact data about the implementation of these research projects.
Methodology: This study utilized the results of the research projects in the field of fisheries and aquaculture operators are looking at 2001 to 2011 was performed. Survey methodology and questionnaires were used to collect the data. The research population is 228 persons of researchers who have done a research project from 2001 to 2011.
Findings: Findings showed that 66 percent of researchers claimed that their research projects have been used; 27 percent declare none of use and 4 percent in this case were unaware and 3 percent did not respond.
Conclusion: Research in the field of fisheries and aquaculture shows that the application of the results is acceptable. This is due to the fact that out of the randomized population (135 projects examined), about 66% of the research projects have been put into practice from the perspective of the operators.
