This Agrodok aims at providing basic information on how to set up asmall-scale fish farm for subsistence purposes.As fish farming practices are very diverse, we have chosen to limitourselves to small-scale freshwater fish farming in the tropics. And, aspond fish farming is the most common form of fish cultivation inthese areas, the information provided focuses on pond constructionand pond management.The first part of this Agrodok (Chapters 1 to 4) describes the princi-ples of fish farming, types of fish farms, methods of fish farming, andpond maintenance and monitoring. Also included is a section on pe-riphyton-based fish farming, a new and promising technology. Thesecond part of the book gives basic guidelines for setting up a fishfarm and covers the selection of a proper site, of farm type and of fishspecies to be cultured. Fish nutrition, health, reproduction, harvestingand post-harvesting aspects are briefly discussed.Agromisa welcomes your comments on the contents of this book, oradditional information in order to improve future editions.Wageningen, 2008.Eira Carballo
