Outstanding yields and profits from livestock-tilapia integrated farming.

Despite setbacks that included typhoons and floods, and experimental animals that once ate precious data sheets, the most intensive research on integrated farming in Southeast Asia was successfully concluded at the end of 1981. It was carried out by scientists and technicians from ICLARM and the Freshwater Aquaculture Center (FAC), Central Luzon State University, Philippines, using specially prepared ponds at the FAC. The results of eighteen major experiments carried out over nearly four years, quantified the potential for producing high yields of tilapia and carp, providing at the same time an efficient way of disposing of livestock manures.
