Tips for good fish culture practices

  • Prepare pond meticulously before initiating fish culture every year

  • Get rid of all pre-existing fish before starting new culture

  • Stock fish optimally - do not overstock or under stock

  • Do not stock small fish with big ones or in other words, stock fish of more or less the same size and at the same time

  • Apply organic manure, lime and inorganic fertilizer as per recommendations and rake the pond bottom with net at least once a month

  • Apply supplementary feed on daily basis as per recommendations

  • Keep the pond and its surrounding devoid of weeds

  • Pond dykes should have such plants/trees that provide shade, check soil erosion but at the same time do not pollute the water with the falling leaves

  • Ponds should be airy and have sufficient sunlight penetration

  • Use cheap local ingredients as fish and prawn feed

  • Dyke of the pond should be strong and well guarded to prevent escape of fish & prawn from the pond and also to prevent entry of wild fish into it
