“This Agrodok concerns extensive and semi-intensive fish farming, and is therefore not a guide for high production fish farming. Different types of fish farming ponds and pond design and construction techniques are presented before a discussion on how to manage water quality in the pond. The second half of the Agrodok provides a guide for planning your fish farm. This guide includes methods for choosing optimal pond site based on soil conditions, different water source considerations, choosing an appropriate fish species, how to care for the fish, as well as harvest and post-harvest methods. Two appendices are at the end of the Agrodok, the first sorts common fish species by dietary habits, the second describes liming material characteristics to control water pH and alkalinity.
