Abstract: Most of the inhabitants of the Hills Zone of Assam survive on their traditional knowledge base. These people are bound by traditions and are relatively untouched by modem scientific knowledge on aquaculture and allied sector. An attempt has been made in present study to document Indigenous Technical Knowledge (ITK) related to aquaculture in the Hills Zone of Assam. Data was collected after interviewing 80 fishers in one of such areas with the help of an interview schedule. In Pond construction/maintenance, seed transport and fish health management, nine ITKs were documented in this study. Under pond construction and maintenance, ITKs on traditional spillway, and protection of pond dyke were documcnted and under fish health management ITKs on control of dissolved oxygen deficiency, turbidity control, control of Argulus, leach control and control of Epizootic Ulceratic Disease Syndrome were documented.
