The purpose of this review, especially aimed at extension staff, farmers, their families and all the people involved in the production chain, is to synthesize available information and highlight the important role that aquaculture in rice-based farming systems can play for food security and poverty alleviation. This review also describes the history of the practice and the different rice ecosystems in which fish farming takes place. The various production systems, including modifications of the rice fields necessary for integrating fish farming, and the agronomic and aquaculture management are examined.

FARM PONDS FOR WATER, FISH AND LIVELIHOODS        
subjects:  Education and Training Planning Tools     Fisheries and Aquaculture     Water    
levels and types of education: Non-formal education     Teachers' training          
MILLER JAMES W.
FAO, ROME, 2009

English
This booklet is a useful tool for planners, farmers, educators on rural development. It provides basic and practical information on multiple-use smallholder farm ponds. Ponds add value to farming activities: water from ponds can serve domestic and livestock water supplies as well as irrigation for crops. They can also be used to raising fish which adds value to the water and provides improved nutrition for farm families. The booklet suggests ways by which smallholder farmers can participate in the market economy through better market access and outlines strategies to attract the private sector to do business with smallholders.

The seasonal rise and fall of the Tonle Sap Lake is essential for the existence of nearly two million Cambodians living on an ecosystem based on rice and hundreds of different species of fish, birds, plants, and insects, each contributing to the reciprocal benefit of all. But uncontrolled deforestation, the construction of dams on the Mekong River and sophisticated commercial fishing techniques are spoiling the environment and reducing food security. This video aims at creating awareness in the communities, explaining how to exploit in a sustainable way their delicate environments using modern techniques. This video is of special interest to secondary school teachers and students, adult community groups and rural development specialists.
