Farming Fish and Aquaculture
Farming fish and aquaculture is undertaken on a small scale in many parts of the world. Approaches will vary in different parts of the world and the type of aquaculture will also be different. This section provides a little bit of information on some of these approaches.
From Practical Action Publishing

Livelihood from Fishing
This book is the result of reflection, meetings and discussions since 1984 when the FAO organized the World Conference on Fisheries Management and Development and is also the fruit of close ties with fishworker organizations in both North and South.
Climate Change and Threatened Communities
This book argues that planners and researchers of climate change mitigation and adaptation must take into account the knowledge and capacity of rural people, and engage them as active participants in the design and governance of interventions, not as a matter of courtesy, but because it is their right.
Indigenous Knowledge Development in Bangladesh
Indigenous knowledge in development is one of the new approaches being pioneered: If development is to continue to involve outside mediated interventions, in the belief that foreigners have knowledge and resources that can assist in relieving the degrading poverty endured by millions, the policymakers, scientists and bureaucrats need better to appreciate the indigenous view and practices both before and while intervening locally.
