Roos, N. and Islam, M.M. and Thilsted, S.H. and Ashrafuddin, M. and Mursheduzzaman, M. and Mohsin, D.M. and Shamsuddin, A.B.M. (1999) Culture of mola (Amblypharyngodon mola) in polyculture with carps: experience from a field trial in Bangladesh. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 22(2), pp. 16-19.
Studies were carried out during May 1997 to January 1998 in Kishoregani district in Bangladesh to investigate the production potential of carp polyculture in combination with Amblypharyngodon mola in seasonal ponds. The preliminary results indicate that A. mola can be successfully cultured in small seasonal ponds in polyculture with carp. This practice can result in an increase in the households' consumption of small fish which have a very high content of calcium, iron and vitamin A. In addition to the nutritional benefits, it can also provide additional income through sale of carp and surplus small fish.
