Abstract: "When integrated with agriculture, rural fish farming can socially and economically transform smallholder farmers in Malawi. While the government of Malawi and its donor partners have intensively promoted fish farming, few smallholder farmers have adopted the technology. This study was conducted to investigate factors that affect adoption of fish farming, Age dimba size and livestock ownership were positively related to adoption of fish farming, while sex was negatively associated to the adoption of fish farming suggesting that the older the person the larger the dimba and those with more livestock are likely to adopt fish farming. On the other had males are more likely to adopt fish farming than female farmers."
