In the photo one can see a coconut palm and lush greenery around in a region with a rainfall of 8,000 mm / year. The 1000-m2 ponds shown in the photo are of the typical size used by peasant families whereas  red tilapia are farmed at a density of 5 individual /square meter which is considered a semi-intensive farming.
