In some parts of the world – particularly communities living near lakes and large rivers – fishing is part of their traditional way of life. In many other parts of the world, fish farming is a recent idea – maybe even a totally new one. Bob Hansford helpfully compares fish farming to all other types of farming. In this issue we look at small scale fish farming – in ways that would be easy for anyone to try out on a small piece of land. If the idea of fish farming (or aquaculture, as it sometimes called) is new to you, we hope this issue will give you enough confidence to try it out for yourself. The resources page gives details of further information, resource centres and training. You may also find your local department of agriculture or fisheries very helpful.
