Brunei Darussalam: Status of implementation of the resolution and plan of action on aquaculture.
MetadataShow full item record
The aquaculture industry in Brunei Darussalam consists of cage culture of marine fishes and pond culture of freshwater and marine shrimps. The government has established various facilities to promote, facilitate and sustain the development of the industry so it can play a vital role in achieving the overall food production target and diversification of the country s food supply. The development of technology on marine fish seed production and culture of high commercial-value marine fish species, especially the green and red grouper are one of the priorities of the Department of Fisheries (DoF). Moreover, the development of potential species for export and improvement of aquaculture facilities will also be given due attention. The country is now focusing on the following: (1) production not only of marine fishes but also of freshwater and ornamental fishes since most of these are imported from the neighboring countries; (2) commercial production of specific pathogen free (SPF) Litopenaeus stylirostris; and (3) development of off-shore cage culture industry.
