Stocking in ponds
Pond stocking is the beginning of a production cycle and must handled carefully, to avoid any errors that may reduce the quality of fish at harvest.

Kimera BridgetBe4 stocking what should one have in mind ( pond size, what quality etc ) coz I see it's important. And I think it's necessary to put more light during transportation of fish for stocking. But all in all good work done thx.
RRoseSenior Research OfficerNARO- NaFIRRI, Kajjansiuseful module indeed since the stocking, observation of fish after stocking and the correspond records are vital that farmers often neglect and yet determine what they get out n the end....
AAliceInformation Communication OfficerNaFIRRIThe contracts of the experts should be attached to every course for the stakeholders to have access to the exerts in case they need more explanations
Mmargaretsenior research officernational agricultural research organisation, aquaculture research and development center-kajjansiNice course outline. It might be helpful to also add information on guidelines on appropriate fingerling transportation
GGertrudeSocio-economistNaFIRRIVery useful information.
JohnSenior Research ScientistNational Fisheries Resources Research InstituteIt be useful to categorize what is good for tilapia and catfish. Also, include actual sources/contacts of certified seed producers
