This case study provided an applicable agro-ecological engineering model for environmental protection and agricultural sustainable development in a tributary basin of the Yellow River. In constructing this model, the principles of multi-species symbiosis and cycling or regenerating of substances were used. Methods of diagnosis, design and examination, as well as implementation to artificial ecosystems, were adopted. On the basis of conditions in this regulated river, the former single-species fishfarming system was converted into a compound, multi-species river and wetland farming system by means of agro-ecological engineering techniques, resulting in benefits to both the ecology and local economy.
