Best management practices (BMPs) are a critical component to any successful fish farming operation.


BMPs can allow farmers to reduce the likelihood of catastrophic loss by having a plan in place that acknowledges where potential problems may occur in their farming operation and what actions to take when they do. Properly implemented BMPs will cover a wide range of items from managing water quality to limiting predation.
