Composite fish culture is a method in which five or six different types of fish species are grown together in a single fish pond. Fish with different food habitats are selected so they don’t fight with each other for food. This guarantees that the food supplies in the pond are completely utilized. Such a system improves the fish yield.
Example: Catla feed on the water surface, rohu are feeders for the middle region, mrigal and common carp are feeders for the bottom and grass carp feeds on weeds.
- Increases the yield of the fish.
- Ensures the full utilization of food in the pond.
