Small-scale fish farming
Practical Action
family labour is itself a comparative advantage. Thirdly, in those systems which use local food
resources, such as natural foods and kitchen wastes, feed costs are relatively low compared with
those for commercial producers. Small-scale fish producers should therefore be able to survive
competition in much the same way as village-scale poultry producers have survived, and even to
some extent benefit from the increasing number of intensive poultry operations.
