This paper looks into the components and considerations of a prawn or prawn and rice farming project in the village of Vuisiga, Fiji. It considers Fijian culture and its implications for this farming system, and the climate of Fiji for the feasability of this. Three scenarios are described: prawn monoculture, concurrent prawn/rice farming, and rice monoculture. For each scenario there are descriptions of how to implement the system from the building of the ponds to the harvest of product. Recommendations are given as well.
