Abstract

Abstract An integrated system for biogas production from rabbit droppings and utilization of the biogas effluent for production of major carp (Rohu, Labeo rohita) and common carp ( Cyprinus carpio) was studied. Rabbit droppings produced 0·24 m 3 of biogas per kg of total solids (TS). Biogas effluent, when used at 30 kg/100 m 2 area in ponds as the sole source of feed for carp, yielded 8·9 kg/100 m 3/120 days of fish which lad favourable colour, flavour and taste.
