Handbook on small-scale freshwater fish farming FAO Training Series 24 1994 205pp ISSN 0259 2533 Publications Division, FAO, Viale delle Terme di Caracalla 00100 Rome, ITALY
This handbook provides a wealth of simply presented and illustrated information on freshwater fish farming in ponds, pens and cages which has been compiled from five booklets published on the subject in FAO's Better Farming Series between 1979 and 1990. Particulars of pond, pen and cage location, construction and management are outlined in ways that can be modified to suit local conditions. The handbook is primarily intended to help workers, technicians and teachers present their knowledge of freshwater fish farming to small-scale farmers. For example, it can be used as a trainers' aid in conjunction with the five original booklets, which can be distributed among trainees. The handbook ends with a set of questions that could be used to test the trainees' comprehension.
