Anything that sounded like the emperor's name could not be kept or killed. The ban had a productive outcome, because it resulted in the development of polyculture, growing multiple species in the same ponds. Different species feed on different foods and occupy different niches in the ponds. In this way, the Chinese were able to simultaneously breed four different species of carp, the mud carp, which are bottom feeders, silver carp and bighead carp, which are midwater feeders, and grass carp which are top feeders.

The present generation of inhabitants in the coastal communes of Demak district have specialised in aquaculture, some people still practice traditional fisheries and most lost skills in cropping rice. Therefore aquaculture offers the best option for short term improvements in livelihoods. Several species that are already cultured in Demak - tiger shrimp, white legged shrimp, milkfish and tilapia – in particular offer opportunities to enhance productivity and income. This is because their market price is high, they are not sensitive to pollution/salinity and/or they are suitable for cultivation in extensive poly-culture systems. The latter is important because this allows implementation of so-called multi-trophic aquaculture systems in which farmers stock multiple species which stimulates nutrient recycling and hence limits pollution.
Pond Ecosystem Investigation Lab report By: Harshal Buradkar 9 grade Introduction A pond ecosystem consists of abiotic: light intensity of the water, depth of the water, and biotic: fish, plants, bacteria, algae, insects and etc. It also contains water and plants which is the most important part of the pond. Ponds are mostly shallow with the depth of 12-15 feet in which the sun rays can touch the bottom of the pond so that plants can grow. My aim is to find out how the plant cover affect the biodiversity of animal life in the pond. Experimental question How does the plant cover affect the biodiversity of animal life in the pond?
Pond fish culture system is one of the common agricultural techniques in the present. Pond fish culture also a profitable aquaculture practice like as Shrimp of giving foreign exchange. But anyway, it also depends on the culturing fish species (Akankali et al, 2011). According to the Edirisinghe (2009), Ponds are the aquatic water resources which are the sizes below 3ha (In an aspect of Sri Lanka). The water level of ponds also should be near to the ground level.
The table 1 explains some of the enzymes that have been used in aquafeed for their potential benefit to the aquaculture industry. Table 1- Enzymes for feed applications and their specific function Enzyme Function Amylase Utilization of starch and complex polysaccharides Arabinase, Pectinase Degradation of anti-nutritional factors Mannanase Degradation of mannans, a non-starch
By combination both of this method, it can say that aquaponic is the sustainable agriculture, because it reuse the non-renewable resources. During fish respiration, the oxygen and carbon dioxide has exchanged in a cycle, while the waste product from fish has highly nitrogen or ammonia content. Highly concentration of ammonia within the fish habitat will slow the growth rate of fish and it also can damage the tissue of fish or in other words, the fish will die if there is no management on water quality (Masser, Rakocy and Losordo, 1999). So, water from the fish tank is pump into the plant beds and this water contain highly nitrogen levels. Beneficial bacteria that present in a plant bed has help the process of water cleaning.
Although the use of farmland for aquaculture is not allowed everywhere, possibilities may exist with the combined use of agriculture and aquaculture through rice cultivation during the rainy months and shrimp cultivation during the rest of the year, as is done in Kerala and West Bengal. Moreover, in line with the Indian priorities, existing swamps and derelict waters offer a huge potential for the production of catfish. Marine
"Consumer attitudes to organic foods." British Food Journal 93.2 (1991): 25-30.) By producing organic food farmers are able to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases, such as methane and nitrous oxide, which farms release into the atmosphere. The synthetic fertilisers that many farmers use requires a lot of fossil fuel during the manufacturing process, so using less synthetic fertiliser means that less fossil fuels are being burned. Chemical fertilizers pose a threat to the environment and often chemicals enter into local ecosystems harming animals and polluting rivers.
(2011), one of the methods to change leftover foods was to enhance soil fertilizer. Therefore, the best recycling method of food waste was to convert it into animal feed are significant because of improve productivity of animals and also decreasing environmental
Natural Gardening is away of planting in agreement with nature. Growing a sound and beneficial yield in a way that is more advantageous for both you and the earth. Aquaponics is a mix of aquaculture and hydroponics. What is aquaponics? How can it consolidate aquaculture and hydroponics?
