Proceedings of the International Symposium on Small-scale Freshwater Aquaculture Extension

Published: 19/9/2014 | 2442 views

This is the proceedings of the an international symposium organised for stakeholders involved in the JICA-assisted projects in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Benin and Madagascar. The main objective of this symposium was to provide a venue for information sharing on extension of small-scale aquaculture, specifically targeted to those individuals and relevant organizations involved in various aquaculture development projects. The symposium also assessed the effectiveness of "farmer-to-farmer" extension approaches in the implementation of relevant aquaculture development projects in the region.

Construction and installation of hexagonal wooden cages for fish farming

Author(s): Fabrizio Piccolotti | Published: 21/10/2013 | 2664 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.

Public Sector Regulatory Systems for Ecosystems Based Management of Aquaculture - a GAP Analysis Tool

Author(s): Perera, R.P. | Published: 4/9/2013 | 2417 views

This document presents a tool, in the form of an audit table that can be used to broadly screen and identify gaps in the management systems of government agencies responsible for regulating aquaculture. These gaps, once identified, can be a first step toward building regulatory frameworks that can better deliver on jurisdictional ecologically sustainable development (ESD) and ecosystems approach to aquaculture (EAA) objectives. The end product of an assessment is a report for consideration by decision makers that lists the identified systems deficiencies and recommends aspects of aquaculture regulatory systems that should be developed, improved or subject to closer investigation. The audit tool is intended for self-assessment by interested government jurisdictions and should ideally be conducted by a small team comprising individuals with relevant expertise taken from within government agencies, external consultants or a combination thereof.

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 | 3124 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.

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 | 3442 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.
