Credit: Deepak Bhusal (Nepal):

The photo shows swampy land which is managed and used for aquaculture in the central region of Nepal. In background fishermen are harvesting the fish. The management of this practice is done as licensed under community control and ownership. Community stocks and harvests the fish and hence others are not allowed to fish in this area (Gholes). Stocked fish species common carp, silver carp, bighead carp, grass carp, Rohu (Labeo rohita), Bhakur (Catla catla) and Naini (Cirrhinus mrigala). No external feeds are provided in this system.

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This is expected and will be appreciated.
