This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To determine the ability of larvivorous fish to prevent malaria by evaluating the impact on:

a) confirmed malaria cases in humans; and/or

b) the density of adult malaria vectors.

If research evidence for an effect on confirmed malaria cases and density of adult vectors is equivocal or insufficient, we will examine the evidence for potential efficacy from field studies meeting minimum design criteria that examine the effects of larvivorous fish on the density of vector larvae or the prevalence of breeding sites positive for larvae of the vector.
