Brackishwater pond construction
MetadataShow full item record
The success of aquaculture in brackish-water ponds depends largely on the conditions in the area, and on pond construction and management. To avoid difficulties that would affect the profitability of the enterprise, these three points should be given careful consideration from the time the site is selected until construction of the brackishwater ponds is completed. Sometimes, water management problems take place after the brackishwater ponds are completed. These are caused by poor site selection, i.e., the elevation of the pond area was too high, or tidal fluctuation was too low for proper pond management. At times, the pond could not be properly filled because of faulty construction and leakage around a sluice gate or along the main dike. To avoid such problems, this manual gives advice to fish farmers who intend to construct brackishwater ponds. This will also be useful to instructors and extension workers on brackishwater pond management.
