In the recent years concern for finding remedies for the negative impacts of aquaculture practices has surfaced. It has been proved that for long term growth of aquaculture Industry both ecologically sound practices and sustainable resource management are a pre requisite. Shnmp pond water replete with suspended solids and algae have been found to increase growth rates of bivalves and the filtering capacity of these organisms have improved the water quality. A brief account of integrated farming concept, .which can be considered as a natural remedy for the sustainable aquacu lture, is discussed. Suspended culture of oysters and mussels along with shrimp or in drainage ponds will be beneficial to both bivalves and shrimps.
