The present study aimed to describe the rice-fish culture techniques practiced in Bédiala. The methodology used was to follow the activities of the rice-fish farmers in this area. Its results of our investigations that rice sowing is done on 80% of the surface of the dam upstream from the monk. One month later, the stocking of male Oreochromis niloticus and Heterotis niloticus began. According to the monitoring and maintenance of the dams, the rice-fish farmers have been classified into three groups: the first group did not feed the fish, the second group fertilizes the ponds and the last group gives in addition to fertilizers, rice bran or maize bran to fish. After the harvest of the rice, rearing continues until the fish reach their market size. We also found that the fish biotic yield depends on the rearing environment and on whether or not a feed supplement is provided to fish.Pages: 386-390 | 443 Views 49 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
