Although the recycling of excrements in integrated agriculture-aquaculture farming systems offers many advantages, the spread of diseases to man via aquatic organisms multiplying in excreta-laden water needs special attention. There is strong evidence that aquatic organisms may be more important vectors for human diseases than generally realized. However, conclusive epidemiological studies linking the use of excreta in aquaculture with human diseases are lacking. © 1990.
