An attempt has been made to evolve an economically viable and environmentally sustainable technology of poultry-Fish integration in mid hills. Experiment was conducted for different three fish stocking densities (2.5, 3.0, 4.0 fish/m3) and two integration level of the poultry birds (10 and 20 chicks/100m2) in double replication in Champawat district of Uttarakhand state. The average data for net production of fish reflected the maximum production of fish with stocking density of 3 fish/m3 and integration of 20 chicks /100 m2 pond area. The net return over the operational cost was calculated as 134.8%, 340.8% and 395.7 % in non-integrated pond and integrated pond with 10 chicks and 20 chicks, respectively. All parameters of physico- chemical properties of the water in above model of integrated ponds were found in permissible limits, indicates the feasibility of the conducted experiment with better economic returns and ecological efficiency in coldwater conditions
