Abstract: "The intensive cage culture has an adverse effect on the quality of waters due to the high nutrient discharge of intensive fish culture. The combination of the intensive cage and the extensive aquaculture exploits the advantages of traditional pond farming and intensive fish culture systems. Valuable predatory fish species can be produced in the intensive part of the system, whilst the integration of an extensive pond as a treatment unit results in decreased nutrient loading to the environment and increased nutrient recovery in fish production. The combination of cage and pond fish farming is a new method for predatory fish production in fishponds. By the exploiting of the traditional fish ponds with intensive fish production in cages makes possible for the traditional carp farmers to increase their production capacity, diversify the cultured species and recycle the nutrients within the production systems."
