A study about farmers' adaptation of fishing instruments in northeastern Thailand. The studied area was Thung Kula in the north east of Thailand. The research method was qualitative. Data were collected from relevant documents and from interviews with 25 informants in Ban Ta Yuak, Thung Luang sub-district, Suwannaphum district, Roi-Et province. The authors found that Ban Ta Yuak farmers have adapted their fishing instruments to fit the available kinds of fish and the ecological systems of the local water sources. It was found that prior to the application of the national economic and social plan of 1962 these farmers created simple fishing instruments. In 1963, the Ban Ta Yuak farmers started using fishing instruments that combined natural materials with technological devices available in the markets. The researchers describe nine kinds of devices presently used.
