Fish production from aquatic weeds.

Irrigation in the eleven River Basin Authorities and in particular in the South Chad Irrigation Project and the Baga Polder Project is increasing and demands high yearly investments for aquatic weed control in canals and drains. If the weeds are biologically controlled by the grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella Val.), the costs will be turned into profit, particularly when the fish production (resident fish plus grass carp) is harvested and sold for food. The use of irrigation canals and drains for aquaculture in the form of fish polyculture may be a wise step towards increased fish production. This paper highlights the concept of fish production from aquatic weed control and concludes that it is a proven profitable venture in several countries
