Abstract: Although many freshwater prawn farms in Bangladesh are small-scale operations, larger commercial facilities are driving production increases in the country. A survey of 100 prawn farmers from four prawn-farming areas indicated that nearly all farmers practice polyculture of prawns with carp. Primarily using hatchery fry, they apply modified extensive practices that include fertilization and supplemental feed.
