    Be4 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.

    useful 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....

    Nice course outline. It might be helpful to also add information on guidelines on appropriate fingerling transportation

    It be useful to categorize what is good for tilapia and catfish. Also, include actual sources/contacts of certified seed producers

    Survival of larvae & ultimately number of fingerlings can be dramatically increased by use of live feed
