      Aqua Farm News Volume 10(01) January - February 1992 

      MT Castaños (Ed.) - 1992 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      This issue takes a look first at the economics of the world trade of ornamental fish. Virtually, no complete statistics are known to have been compiled on world trade in tropical aquarium fish other than the assessment made by the International Trade Centre UNCTAD/GATT in 1979 with the eight largest tropical aquarium fish markets: United States, Germany FR, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, France, and Switzerland. These countries then accounted for 70% of total world imports of aquarium fish. Detailed statistics on the trade and industry are not generally available because of the low volume (though high value) of the commodity. And then, the status of the Philippine industry and a concern on conservation - particularly of the marine ornamental fish - as well as some management aspects are discussed.

      This issue considers the feasibility of culturing mudcrabs, taken largely from research studies of SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department. Considering the large economic returns, methods of culture are then discussed including fattening. Cultures of Thai and Malay crabs are also noted, these minus the cultural connotations. For those interested in crab capture, traditional devices in catching crabs are presented; and for those whose palates are into gourmet, crab preparation and cooking are discussed.

      This issue presents a review of grouper aquaculture in Southeast Asia. It also reports studies on grouper conducted at SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department, some industry trends, and technology tips from research and academic institutions. Grouper biology is also discussed as well as grouper markets.

      The issue presents a middle ground in terms of mollusc culture and discusses: (1) the benefits in terms of production that translate into peso-dollar revenue and human protein and (2) the industry problems and constraints. The technology on mussel culture developed by SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department, and the mariculture of giant clams for food and stock replenishment are highlighted. Public health risks, including paralytic shellfish poisoning, are also covered.

      This issue assesses aquaculture education and training in Southeast Asia, especially for entrepreneurs to have a general view of manpower available to them. For technical staff and fishfarmers, available information and training programs are noted. This issue focuses in particular on the SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department.

      Little research or data has been done or gathered on the snappers and these are presented in this issue: spawning, larval rearing, and grow-out culture. Some baseline studies conducted by SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department on the induced breeding and taxonomy of snappers in the Philippines are also included.

      MT Castaños (Ed.) - 1993 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      The milkfish Chanos chanos is a food of the common tao (man) and one of the most important fishes farmed in the Philippines. It is also a cultural symbol in the country, a national fish no less. To develop the milkfish industry, the Philippine Government established the National Bangus Breeding Program (NBBP) in 1981. NBBP was undertaken by the Department of Agriculture and the SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department with funding support from the International Development Research Centre of Canada. NBBP's target is commercial production of fry using the milkfish breeding and hatchery techniques developed by SEAFDEC.

      NBBP has twelve project sites, one in each of the country's regions. The Philippine Government recently decided to privatize the NBBP stations when technical and administrative problems remain unsolved. There was no commercial production of milkfish fry in most of the stations despite almost 10 years of operation.

      The questions that potential investors are now asking themselves are:

      • What is the economic prospect of milkfish breeding in the country?

      • Is the bangus breeding technology "ripe"?

      • How much money will be invested?

      • Where are these stations to be privatized?

      • What about their status?

      • What are the mechanics of the privatization?

      • Where will we get the human resources to run the business?

      This issue on milkfish breeding attempts to answer these questions.
