Fish farming - a food and livelihood option

I am a small farmer with 7 acres land and generally grow paddy, finger millet and green gram. I also have a pond of size (60 ft x 60 ft), which I use for fish farming and used to get 50-60 kg fish per year. Since I did not have sufficient knowledge about fish farming, I did not pay much attention and was satisfied with whatever harvest quantity I was getting.
