In the course of the final century, specialisation and intensification have been buzz phrases for farmers within the Western international. despite the fact that, this strategy has now not led to sustainable improvement as evidenced via the truth that scientists now have to create applied sciences to lessen adverse affects. during this e-book we reveal that an alternate exists. Case experiences from Bangladesh, Thailand, and Vietnam convey that integration and diversification bring up either farm productiveness and farmers' earning. through adopting a participatory procedure, farmers and scientists pointed out more than a few applied sciences that increase the confident affects of built-in aquaculture-agriculture structures for the surroundings. This booklet is a suite of refereed papers on a debatable topic in agricultural improvement. Arguing that sustainability of fish tradition in ponds wishes a brand new paradigm - feed the pond to develop fish - chapters concentrate on nutrient biking in such platforms. one other bankruptcy makes the case for breeding Nile tilapia for source bad farmers and provides sensible thoughts to prevent the pitfalls that come up from average tilapia mating in low-input ponds. The booklet comprises chapters on livelihood and improvement elements and ends with a common dialogue finishing the image of the built-in aquaculture-agriculture platforms. total, it composes a evaluation which addresses one of many key problems with the recent century: tips on how to sustainably produce nutrients with out compromising environmental integrity
