Integrated Duck and Fish farming
Integrated duck an fish farming allows full use of the pond. Duck droppings directly fall in water or collected and used for fertilization in pond. Fish gather duck droppings as direct food or consume spilled feed. Ducks consume mosquito larvae, tadpoles, dragon fly larvae and snails. The dabbling habit of ducks increases the available oxygen in pond water. For maximum profit high egg producing ducks like Khaki Campbell or Indian Runner is preferred. About 200 to 240 eggs/ duck/ year is expected for commercial farming and on an average 250 ducks/ ha is recommended for duck cum fish farming.
