dc.description.abstract "The paper defines integrated fish farming as a multiple land use approach in fish culture which combines fish farming with other agricultural production. The concept of integration is explained along with its merits. Financial analysis of integrating fish with livestock such as fish cum-poultry (chicken and duck) fish curn pig, fish curn rabbit and fish cum cattle integration are presented. "It was observed that integration of fish with livestock would yield profit for the fish farmer from sales of products such as eggs, meat and fish. The livestock manure is a good source of organic fertilizer for fish fanning and biogas production. With the present high cost ofpelleted fish feeds integrated fish farming will help to reduce cost of fish feeds and at the same time yield high economic returns." en_US
