      Abalone culture: a new business opportunity 

      WG Gallardo & ND Salayo - SEAFDEC Asian Aquaculture, 2003 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      There are about 100 species of abalone in the world, but only 20 are of high commercial importance. In the Philippines, the abalone species are Haliotis asinina, H. varia, H. ovina and H.glabra, but it is the former which has high commercial value. The semi-processed abalone are frozen, dried or canned for export to many countries. An outline is given of the major aquaculture activities and duration of breeding and culture. Abalone hatchery production operations and investment costs and returns are detailed. Particular reference is made to the modular system of abalone culture in floating cages.

      Agiis: a bivalve cultivated as live shrimp feed 

      MB Surtida & RY Buendia - SEAFDEC Asian Aquaculture, 2000 - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Deparment
      Live 'agiis' have been proven to be a good feed for shrimp for the past ten years by polyculture fish farmers in the province of Capiz, in the island of Panay, west central Philippines. A brief account is given of culture and feeding operations. Its cultivation period is short and seeds are readily available. It can reduce dependence on trash fish which is now getting to be scarce; it also seems much cheaper. Perhaps this fast-growing tiny bivalve can be scientifically investigated by students of aquaculture as feed for other commercial aquaculture species. Its scientific identification can be a good start.

      Agri-aqua farming in Thailand 

      RY Buendia - SEAFDEC Asian Aquaculture, 1997 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      Integrated agriculture-aquaculture systems have been in existence in Thailand for centuries. This country has the most varied integrated farming operations in southeast Asia; pig, cattle, buffalo, chicken, duck, vegetable, aquatic plant, rice and orchard in combination with fish are practices. The systems most preferred by subsistence farmers are rice-fish, duck-fish and chicken-fish culture. A brief outline is given of these 3 systems.

      Aquaculture marketing 

      MB Surtida - SEAFDEC Asian Aquaculture, 2000 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      Aquaculture production is meaningless unless distributed and consumed. Most of the time, the technology generated addresses production, never mind distribution and consumption. Experts say that if production is to be increased, distribution "from the point of production to the point of consumption must complement the increase." As fish production increases, marketing must be efficient to allow it to expand.

      Aquaculture of the mangrove red snapper 

      A Emata - SEAFDEC Asian Aquaculture, 2003 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      Mangrove red snapper (Lutjanus argentimaculatus) is an important marketable species throughout the Indo-Pacific region. It is a euryhaline species; it can tolerate freshwater, brackishwater and marine water. Modular culture is the common system in snapper production in the Philippines. Stocking density is 4,000 fry per cropping; there could be 2 croppings per year. Brief details are given of investment costs and returns for culture in brackishwater pens.

      The aquaculture training needs in the Philippines and Southeast Asia 

      CT Villegas & RB Lacierda - SEAFDEC Asian Aquaculture, 1997 - SEAFDEC Asian aquaculture
      AQD has grown into one of the largest and best equipped aquaculture institutions in Asia. The research-based knowledge that AQD has accumulated is aimed at improving aquaculture technologies and providing the necessary background data for academic training of aquaculturists in the region. In order to improve its training programmes, AQD made an assessment of training requirements and available aquaculture manpower in Southeast Asia. Details are given of the survey results, which indicate that brackishwater aquaculture for fish and crustacean has the highest demand until the year 2000. This is followed by freshwater aquaculture, aquaculture management, and fish health management. There is also a need for short-term training on aquaculture research methodology, culture of natural food organisms, fish nutrition, fish and shrimp hatchery operations, aquaculture extension methodology and integrated farming systems.
