Fish is a animal source protein. It is one of the neglected areas because of unawareness among farming community, unfavorable government policies and high inputs involved in fish farming. Fish being rich in nutrients can help to alleviate the malnutrition of the local population. Fish plays an important role in the diet of the people of developing nations. In India, fish and fishing contribute immensely to the national economy by providing high animal food protein and generating employment, which is a means of poverty alleviation. Most importantly, it is the source of livelihood for a large section of economically backward population of the country. Integrated livestock farming will be novel approach for profitable and rumerative fish production. Poultry droppings can be a good source of nutrients for enhancing the productivity of aquatic production systems.
