I'm no expert on landscape design so I may not be able to answer questions if it isn't included here. When the construction site has been prepared, the fish pond and its water control structures can be built. Step-By-Step instructions on how to build a pond for fish. This chapter shows you how to construct the fish pond, while the next chapters of this manual, deal with water control structures. This should give the total cost of constructing one pond but not setting up the fish farm.
A fish pond , or fishpond , is a controlled pond , artificial lake , or reservoir that is stocked with fish and is used in aquaculture for fish farming , or is used for recreational fishing or for ornamental purposes.
In the medieval European era it was typical for monasteries and castles small, partly self-sufficient communities to have a fish pond. Records of the use of fish ponds can be found from the early Middle Ages. Those with access to fish ponds had a controlled source of food, not unlike pastures for cattle and sheep, for use on days when it was not permitted to eat meat.
However fish ponds were difficult to maintain. They were a mark of power and authority, since only rich nobles and institutions such as monasteries could afford to maintain them. Nobles had access to meat from deer parks , but this did not supply the needs of whole households. Though fish ponds required maintenance to keep them healthy,  they were an elegant way of giving monasteries and noble houses access to fresh fish.
Some of the more popular species of fish farmed in fish ponds were carp and pike. From the 14th century onward these fish proved to be a popular feature of artificial fish ponds. Fish ponds are also being promoted in developing countries. They provide a source of food and income from the sale of fish for small farmers and can also supply irrigation needs and water for livestock.
European carp aquaculture in fishponds is probably cleaner than most food production sectors in the EU , offering lesser nutrient burden to the environment than standard crop and livestock sectors.

Although there are many kinds of fish ponds, the following are the main features and structures associated with them in general:. A typical earthen fish pond should be about m 2. Although ponds can be much larger than this, having several small ponds rather than one large one will allow you harvest fish more often. A shortcoming to this is that, many but small ponds are more expensive to construct as compared to a few but larger ponds. Small ponds also waste a lot of space in comparison. However, very large ponds take long to fill and drain and are also difficult to manage.
Any pond can be used to grow fish, but a pond that is dug specially for fish culture usually has a regular shape, a flat bottom with a slight slope along its length.

Each element in this chain is another chapter in your story. What about fish? The design and construction of farm ponds require a thorough knowledge of the site conditions and requirements.
Fish farming is an old agricultural method that modern homesteaders can use today. A great source of continuous protein, freshwater fish farms allow anyone to grow a different variety of fish that can be used for personal consumption. While it may be hard work to get started, building a fish farm can be rewarding, fun, and can really pay off in the long run when you may not have a lot of money to spend on food. It could also be a good income source if you have other people around you who are in need of additional food. Before you begin working out the location of your fish farm you first need to consider three main things. When building a fish farm in your backyard or on your property, it will need to be positioned in an appropriate place to ensure the best growth and health of the fish.
Fish pond preparation is the basic and first step in freshwater fish farming. Pond preparation is to be done intensively to enhance the fish production of the pond. Without proper preparation of the pond bottom if we start the fish culture technique it will create a huge problem and production will be of poor quality. In the case of the pond preparation process, good management practices are the basic solution for obtaining better fish yield. Sustainable methods should always be chosen to make pond preparation more suitable for environment-friendly fish farming technique. The most important component of the fish farming business is to prepare a pond in a proper way.
Design and construction of pond farms. Considering that the construction of farm facilities forms the major capital investment in pond farms and that the operational efficiency of the facilities will largely determine the success of the project, it is fully justified and necessary to devote adequate attention to their design and construction. As mentioned earlier, pond farm designs are site-specific and so it is difficult to detail all possible variations. The aquaculturist will have to work closely with the design engineer to arrive at an economically acceptable design that will meet the operational requirements of the species and the culture technol-ogies. Planned construction is feasible in most projects, except when existing undrainable ponds, tanks or mining pits have to be used, as is the practice in some of the South Asian and Southeast Asian countries. Even then, it may often be possible to design a proper farm, incorporating the existing water bodies for easier management.
This publication outlines some of the options for design, operation and maintenance of ornamental ponds and discusses basic environmental requirements of fish and plants commonly grown in these ponds. Full color. PDF Format Only.

Typical backyard ponds are a complicated mess of pipes, pumps, filters, and nasty chemicals designed to adjust pH and keep algae at bay. Hardly the bucolic, natural ecosystem beloved by dragonflies, frogs, and songbirds. The antidote is a natural pond, free of hassle, cost, and complexity and designed as a fully functional ecosystem, ideal for biodiversity, swimming, irrigation, and quiet contemplation.

Although ponds can be much larger than this, having several small ponds rather than one large one will allow you harvest fish more often.
This guide from Infonet-Biovision provides easy to follow information on how to build a pond for fish farming including findding a location, water inlets, pond size and costs. The importance of proper designs, construction and the need for involvement of experts during the process of setting up aquaculture production units is paramount. Ideally, production units should be designed in such a way to allow total control of:. The production site is of great importance.
Буду держать вас в курсе, - произнес голос, и вслед за этим в трубке раздались короткие гудки. ГЛАВА 14 Беккер впился глазами в труп.
Привратник проводил его в фойе. - Багаж, сеньор. Я могу вам помочь. - Спасибо, не .
Я человек, - подумал. И с ироничной усмешкой вспомнил: - Без воска. Беккер стоял с закрытыми глазами, а человек в очках в металлической оправе приближался к. Где-то неподалеку зазвонил колокол.
Выпустите меня! - Она испуганно смотрела на открытую дверь его кабинета. Стратмор понял, что она смертельно напугана. Он спокойно подошел к двери, выглянул на площадку лестницы и всмотрелся в темноту.
Головы повернулись к спутниковому экрану. - Танкадо играет с нами в слова! - сказал Беккер.
Повсюду в старинных домах отворялись ворота, и люди целыми семьями выходили на улицы. Подобно крови, бегущей по жилам старого квартала Санта-Крус, они устремлялись к сердцу народа, его истории, к своему Богу, своему собору и алтарю. Где-то в уголке сознания Беккера звонили колокола. Я не умер.
К клубу вела узкая аллея. Как только он оказался там, его сразу же увлек за собой поток молодых людей. - А ну с дороги, пидор! - Некое существо с прической, больше всего напоминающей подушечку для иголок, прошествовало мимо, толкнув Беккера в бок. - Хорошенький! - крикнул еще один, сильно дернув его за галстук.
Остальные - все, что внизу. Мы ищем различие, выражаемое простым числом. Через несколько секунд всем стало ясно, что эта затея бессмысленна.
