The integrated of fish farming with agriculture and animal husbandry is considered as sustainable farming system, which offers greater efficiency in resource utilization, reduce risk by diversifying crop, provide additional income and food for small scale farming household. Raising ducks over fish ponds fits very well with the fish polyculture system, as the ducks are highly compatible with cultivated fishes. Fish-cum-Duck integration is very common in countries like China, Hungary, Germany, Poland, Russia, & some parts of Indian state like Andhra Pradesh, Odessa, West Bengal, Bihar, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka & North-East state like Assam, Manipur, Tripura, Mizoram etc. China has a long and rich history of IFF, written records from the first and second centuries BC.

The mutual beneficial effect of combined fish culture and duck raising. Decreases the input cost (60%) on fish culture operation.
