Proper management of fish and plants is a critical element that should be detailed in a production plan. Whether large or small scale, producers must implement strategies for best operation practices. This part of the plan should include, at minimum, fish and plant stocking densities, dates for planting and harvest, and their location or movement within the system (Bregnballe 2010). Additional components should include identification of a steady supply of fish year-round, maximization of space and resources, and a tailored or modified plan based on culture species and individual objectives.
