    Series: Volume 14; No. 04-05
    This issue presents the shrimp production trends in Asia-Pacific, along with notes on the diseases devastating the industry and interviews with shrimp farmers in the Philippines. The options of shrimp farmers -- which are really quite limited and largely experimental - are discussed. These options include probiotics, the use of beta-glucans as immunostimulant, closed recycling systems. Farmers may also opt to farm other high-value species like grouper, mudcrab, or even milkfish to make use of the ponds they have invested quite a lot on.

    This issue also discusses Philippine government efforts to revive the shrimp industry, as well as AQD's R&D priorities for shrimp as worked out in various consultations with AQD's program partners and industry practitioners.

    This issue takes a close look at one fishing village working hard to manage its resources by itself. There are interviews with the village head or Barangay Captain, women leaders, a schoolkid, and a primary grade teacher. Juxtaposed with the lives of the representative members of the village is AQD's research on Community Fishery Resources Management (CFRM) that started in 1991. It has become imperative that the Malalison "laboratory site" be successful, for CFRM might just be the country's only hope in alleviating poverty among coastal communities.
