Integration of aquaculture into the farming systems, India

Summary

The development and uptake of recommendations for the integration of fish into smallholder rain-fed farming systems would benefit from farmer participation in the process. Trials in eastern India with small groups within communities demonstrated strong interest in aquaculture, especially in the use of under-utilised community seasonal ponds. The adoption of group-based aquaculture proved significant, with 57% of all farm groups within the area conducting managed aquaculture by the end of the project.
