    Description

    “There is rice in the fi elds, fi sh in the water.” This sentence inscribed on a stone tablet from the
    Sukhothai period - a Thai kingdom that fl ourished 700 years ago - depicts a scene that must have
    been as idyllic then as it continues to be now.
    Having rice in the fi elds and fi sh in the water is an epitome of abundance and suffi ciency. No other
    combination would seem to be so fundamental and nutritionally complete in the Asian context.
    As such, few other plant and animal combinations seem to be more appropriate to culture together
    to improve nutrition and alleviate poverty. Fish culture in rice fi elds provides the means for “the
    contemporaneous production of grain and animal protein on the same piece of land”
    (Schuster 1955), and in this environmentally conscious age, few other food production systems
    seem more ecologically sound and effi cient. In the strictest sense rice-fi sh farming means the
    growing2 of rice and fi sh together in the same field at the same time. However, it is also taken to
    include the growing of rice and fi sh serially one after another within the same fi eld or the growing
    of rice and fi sh simultaneously, side by side in separate compartments, using the same water.
    Fish by no means strictly refers to fi n-fi sh. It means aquatic animals living in rice fi elds
    including freshwater prawn, marine shrimp, crayfi sh, crab, turtle, bivalve, frog, and even insects.
