Sinh, Le Xuan (1996) The effects of aquaculture on farm household economy: a case study in Omon District, Cantho Province, Vietnam. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 19(1), pp. 50-52.
A study of the farming systems in the Mekong River Delta (Vietnam) indicate that fish culture brings to the household a higher level of net farm income and family labor use. In general, adoption of fish culture is strongly affected by: (1) decline of wildfish; (2) location of the farm; (3) farm size per person and available water bodies within the farm; (4) income of farm, excluding income from fish; (5) guidance from agricultural extension workers; (6) policies of local government on the development of agriculture including aquaculture.
