Significant efforts should be devoted to reducing  waste outputs from aquaculture operations in order to lower the environmental impacts of aquaculture in many parts of the world. Since Most aquaculture waste are ultimately from dietary origin, reduction of waste outputs should first be through improvements of diet formulation and feeding strategies. Proper utilization of livestock waste into biogas, compost impacts of aquaculture in many parts of the world. Since most aquaculture wastes are and vermin compost making can be very useful to increase crop yield and sustainability. The release of solid wastes is mainly a function of the digestibility of various dietary components. The release of dissolved wastes function of the metabolism of nutrients by the fish. Nutritional strategies is elective way of managing waste output by aquaculture operations. Very significant reduction in waste outputs per unit of fish produced, notably in terms for solid and phosphorus wastes, have been achieved over the past few decades by commercial fish culture operations.
