  24. 24. Policy and Strategy for Small Fish Production Policy should be developed and implemented to increase the production and diversity of small fish in wetlands: o Expand and restore fish habitats o Re-stock mola and other micro-nutrient rich small fish o Restore migratory routes and establish fish-friendly structure to allow movement of fish o Support in sustainable management of fisheries in wetlands using Community based approach o Provide support to carryout research on biology and nutrient composition of to select more species for stock enhancement
  25. 25. Policy and Strategy for Small Fish Production Need policy and strategy so that the technologies on pond and pond connected rice fields for carp and small fish production technology can be adopted by large number of farming households within shortest possible time in the country and region Need policy and strategy so that the technologies on pond and pond connected rice fields for carp and small fish production technology can be adopted by large number of farming households within shortest possible time in the country and region
