The pond oils, soil functions in fish pond, soil characterization, components and soil mineral constituents, oil profile soil classification, soil fertility, nutrients, primary and secondary nutrients, soil organic matter, common soil problems, field and laboratory methods in acid sulphate soil identification, management of acid sulphate soil conditions, lime requirements for soils, alkalinity/sodicity, salinity, excess organic matter, soil sampling and analysis are reviewed in this article to provide the needed background in soil for effective culture fisheries management and practices.
