The inserted photo was taken in a governmental station in El Salvador where goats are integrated with fish farming. The small size of goats, their early maturation, and low capital investment are factors to consider when adopting such integrated system. Also, the goat manure can be utilized in fish culture. In brief, the overall objective of such integrated system is to maximize the productivity and minimize the operational costs. The advantage of this integration is maximized when the demand for milk and meat is high.
