Feed and water have to be taken care of
Harvendra explains that in fish farming, the quality of seed, feed and water has to be taken care of the most. The pH of water should be 7.5-8.5. If its Ph decreases, then jaggery can be added to the water. This increases the value of Ph. If the value of Ph has increased, then it is reduced by using lime.
While giving feed to the fish, special care has to be taken that the feed does not collect in one place. If this happens, then the big fish will eat more feed and the smaller fish will not be able to get the feed.

The pond should be cleaned before putting the fish seed.
All aquatic plants, food and small fish should be removed from the pond.
