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.
