Integrated Livestock-Fish Farming Systems
- Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)
Integrated farming in Asia is either considered an eco-friendly good that should be preserved for environmental reasons or a poor practice that will soon be superseded by industrial aquaculture.
This report finds that most livestock-fish integration is sound business conducted by entrepreneurs accessing urban markets where the price of fish is relatively low.
It can be used as part of a strategy to reduce environmental impacts of intensive livestock production and to produce low-cost food.
Farmers have proved adept at both developing their systems to meet their own needs and diversifying the role of ponds, fish and livestock within their complex livelihoods.
