Rice-fish farming: A food security alternative Rice-fish farming is a biological or clean production system that consists of the simultaneous farming of rice and fish on the same land and at the same time; in other words, in the plots flooded for rice cultivation. Rice is the main product and has greater economic importance, whereas the fish is both a source of additional income and a protein supplement that improves the nutritional quality of farmers’ diets. The main aspects and practices of rice-fish farming are described, including: rice field management, fish management, integrated soil and crop management, transplanting, and integrated pest and disease management.||La rizipiscicultura es un sistema de producción biológica o producción limpia, que consiste en la siembra simultánea de arroz y peces en un mismo terreno y al mismo tiempo, es decir, en los lotes que se inundan para el cultivo. El arroz es el producto principal y el de mayor importancia económica; el pescado proporciona una ganancia en dinero adicional o un suplemento de proteína para mejorar la dieta alimenticia de los productores. Se describen los principales aspectos y prácticas de la rizipiscicultura, tales como: manejo del arrozal, manejo de los peces, manejo integrado del suelo y de arvenses, trasplante, y manejo integrado de plagas y enfermedades.
