Abstract

An integrated system for biogas production from mango-processing wastes and utilization of biogas effluent for production of major carp Rohu (Labeo rohita) and common carp (Cyprinus carpio) was studied. Mango peels produced 0.21 m3 biogas/kg TS. Biogas effluent of mango peels, when used at 34 kg/100 m2 area in ponds as the sole source of feed for carps, yielded 8.35 kg/100 m2 of fish, (which had acceptable colour, flavour and taste) every 120 days.
