Culture based fisheries are an effective way of increasing supplies of fish in rural areas. Farmers with relatively little experience in fish culture can productively engage, manage and benefit from culture based fisheries around lakes and reservoirs. This manual will provide guidance to development workers and program planners for integrating community based fisheries into rural development plans.
