A study summarizing available literature on aquaculture and small-scale aquaculture in Malawi. It gives a national case study of one African context in which small-scale aquaculture has developed, and in which integrated systems of agriculture-aquaculture might be promoted.

The findings are presented of a survey conducted in Malawi to determine the acceptability by fish farmers of raisingfish in excreta-fed ponds. The use of livestock excreta appeared to be acceptable to the majority of farmers, whereas the use of human excreta was not. Various recommendations are made regarding the promotion of the use of excreta in small-holder farms.
