Pond aquaculture is being promoted across Bangladesh as a means of generating income, and extension advice includes the use of rotenone as a piscicide to control self-recruiting species within ponds. SRS comprise on average 10% of pond production but have been shown to generate extra financial and social benefits to the owners. The thesis shows there are no apparent impacts on pond yield, therefore the benefits of retaining SRS far outweigh their removal especially in poorer areas.
