Man began to think of fish culture when he realised that the oceans and other waterbodies could not provide sufficient fish to meet the demand of increasing population. This led to the beginning of studies on the reproduction and nutritional requirements of different species of fish. Fish that grow in natural waters get their food from their environment. They move in the sea, lake or river in search of food and favourable conditions for growth and reproduction. When fish are stocked in ponds and farms they have to get additional supply of nutrients fi*om external sources.
