Noble, R.P. and Rashidi, B. (1990) Aquaculture technology transfer to smallholder farmers in Malawi, Southern Africa. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 13(4), pp. 14-16.
Details are given of activities conducted in Zomba, Malawi, in order to demonstrate new aquaculture technologies and encourage their use by smallholder fish farmers. The following technologies were introduced: napier grass as a pond output; use of a reed fence for harvesting fish; developing a high-quality compost as a pond input; vegetable-pond integration; chicken-pond integration; smoking kiln; pond stirring; and rice-fish integration. The reactions of the farmers to these technologies and their testing by the farmers are outlined briefly.
