Suitability for commercial farming and potential yield (crops/y) of Nile tilapia, African catfish and Common carp in Africa 1 January 1998 Map derived from the combined suitability of areas apt for commercial fish farming development and operation with areas with potential yield (crops/y) of Nile tilapia, African catfish and Common carp for small-scale farming. Areas with suitability for commercial fish farming were derived from the combined suitability of five land-quality factors important for fish farming development and operation; net annual water requirement for shallow ponds, soil and terrain suitability for the construction of fish ponds, potential livestock wastes and agriculture by-products as feed and fertilizer inputs, potential for farm-gate sales and potential market demand.

 Suitability for small-scale farming and potential yield (crops/y) of Nile tilapia, African catfish and Common carp in Africa 1 January 1998 Map derived from the combined suitability of areas apt for small-scale fish farming development and operation with areas with potential yield (crops/y) of Nile tilapia, African catfish and Common carp for small-scale farming. Areas with suitability for small-scale fish farming were derived from the combined suitability of four land-quality factors important for fish farming development and operation; net annual water requirement for shallow ponds, soil and terrain suitability for the construction of fish ponds, potential livestock wastes and agriculture by-products as feed and fertilizer inputs, and potential for farm-gate sales.

Suitability for commercial fish farming in Latin America and the Caribbean (1997) 1 January 1997 Areas with suitability for commercial fish farming development and operation. Map derived from the combined suitability of five land-quality factors important for fish farming development and operation; net annual water loss from ponds through evaporation and seepage; soil and terrain suitability for ponds; potential for agriculture by-products and fertiliser inputs; potential for farm gate sales; and potential market demand.

Commercial fish farming potential in Africa 3 January 1994 Areas with potential for commercial fish farming under three temperature regimes providing for one crop/year (1C) with fair to good growth (FGG), two crops/year with fair growth (FG) and with good growth (GG) in combination with four land-quality factors important for fish farming development and operation; water availability, engineering capability, and economic considerations ranging from all suitable to one suitable and two optimum (S-NO), or all optimum (all 0).

Subsistence fish farming potential in Africa 3 January 1994 Areas with potential for subsistence fish farming under three temperature regimes providing for one crop/year (1C) with fair to good growth (FGG), two crops/year with fair growth (FG) and with good growth (GG) in combination with four land-quality factors important for fish farming development and operation; water availability, engineering capability, and economic considerations ranging from all suitable to one suitable and two optimum (S-NO), or all optimum (all 0).
