Construction and installation of hexagonal wooden cages for fish farming

Author(s): Fabrizio Piccolotti | Published: 21/10/2013 | 2724 views

This document was prepared following the implementation of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations of a project in support of marine aquaculture development in the Republic of Djibouti.

During a series of field missions undertaken by the lead author, all the necessary materials for constructing a number of hexagonal wooden cages were assembled and cages were constructed and placed in the sea. The advantages of using locally available materials and the reasonable costs and ease of construction suggest the value of replicating this experience in other environments for the development of artisanal aquaculture. The basic knowledge and instructions provided in this manual are intended for present and future workers in aquaculture development dealing with the construction of small-scale artisanal floating cage for fish farming.

Hatchery management of tiger grouper (Epinephelus fuscoguttatus): A best-practice manual

Author(s): Sugama, K., Rimmer, M.A., Ismi, S., Koesharyani, I., Suwirya, K., Giri, N.A., Alava, V. | Published: 24/4/2013 | 3484 views
This hatchery manual provides guidelines for the production of tiger grouper fingerlings. It outlines best-practice methods for broodstock maintenance, spawning, egg incubation and rearing of larvae through to 2–3 cm, fully metamorphosed juveniles. The manual provides a valuable aid for improving the availability of grouper seed stock to support sustainable small-scale aquaculture in the Asia–Pacific region.

Nursery management of grouper: A best-practice manual

Author(s): Ismi, S., Sutarmat, T., Giri, N.A., Rimmer, M.A., Knuckey, R.M.J., Berding, A.C., Sugama, K. | Published: 24/4/2013 | 3172 views
This manual provides practical guidelines for those engaged in the nursery culture of groupers in Indonesia as well as elsewhere in the tropics. The nursery phase is an intermediate step between hatchery production of seed (ACIAR Monograph No. 149) and stocking of grow-out farms. It involves growing delicate juvenile fish of 2–3 cm long through to physically robust animals of 5–10 cm long. The manual provides information on husbandry of groupers in the nursery phase, to reduce losses due to disease and cannibalism, and thus to increase the profitability of grouper nursing.
