Abstract The information use pattern of researchers in fisheries science was studied by analyzing 10068 citations of 44 doctoral dissertations submitted at the Faculty of Fisheries Sciences in Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Mymensingh during the period 1973 to June 2012. The study reveals that researchers under the study have primarily depended on periodicals of Fisheries Sciences and its allied branches for their source of information. The more cited periodicals (Journals, Bulletin, Proceedings etc.) and non-periodicals (Books, Govt. publications, Theses etc.) were published within 50 years from some preferred countries such as Bangladesh, UK, USA, India, Netherlands, etc. The majority of citations were in English language.
