One way to intensify fish culture without an input of expensive feed is through polyculture. In this way the natural food produced in the culture environment is utilized to a greater extent through compatible or complementary feeding habits of fish which do not compete with each other. In order to utilize natural food to its maximum, and as fish may change their food if their regular food resources become exhausted, it is very important to ascertain the correct ratio between the different species in the polyculture according to the ecological conditions in the pond and to adjust them so that they do not compete with each other.
