Abstract: Present study was aimed to investigate the effect of environmental factors and mosquito larvae as food on fish body growth and to aware village people for mosquito vector management and aquaculture economics in small ponds. The experiment was setup in water storage tank in open environmental conditions in village. Growth of fingerlings in the tank was found to be exponential, where the degree of variance in size among the fingerlings increased with age. Fingerlings were shown significant differences in their growth rates. Rasbora daniconius was very hardy and strong larvivore in the natural environmental conditions. The positive and highly significant correlation 0.9935 was found between length and weight of R. daniconius.
