      The economics of the milkfish fry and fingerling industry of the Philippines 

      IR Smith - 1981 - International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management; Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      Series: ICLARM technical reports; 1
      The fry and fingerling industry of the milkfish (Chanos chanos Forskal) in the Philippines is alleged to suffer from certain imperfections. Primary among these are an annual shortage of catch necessary to meet the stocking requirements of the 176,000 ha of fishponds; high fry mortality rates during transp0rt;failure of the pricing system to perform its spatial and form allocative functions; and exploitation of fry gatherers and pond operators by middlemen and nursery pond operators who form the core around which the whole fry and fingerling industry has developed. These alleged imperfections provide the rationale for various government policies affecting the fry and fingerling industry.

      This study indicates a higher level of industry performance than hitherto supposed. In 1974, an estimated 1.35 billion fry were caught, adequate to meet annual stocking requirements. Allegations of fry shortage were based on simultaneous underestimation of catch and overestimation of stocking requirements, and were traced to temporary price increases resulting from expanded fishpen area, which subsequently declined. Fry storage and transport mortality rates of 8.7% and 6.6%, respectively, compared with a mortality rate of 54% during rearing, indicated that major technical inefficiencies arise in fishponds rather than in the distribution system. Of every 100 fry caught, 38 are harvested at marketable size.

      Monthly average fry prices among 17 major trading regions were significantly correlated, indicating a high level of information flow in the industry. An examination of the concession system which restricts first sale opportunities of gatherers indicated that concessionaires are unable to capture their full monopsony advantage due to the "competitive fringe" of smugglers. Rather than exploitation, the concession system is a form of indirect municipal tax on fry gatherers.

      Since the fry industry is a 57-million-peso-per-year industry upon which approximately 170,000 people directly and indirectly depend, it is suggested that the location of future milkfish hatcheries and timing of production be planned such that they complement rather than displace the natural fry fishery and distribution system.

      Use of Chemicals in Aquaculture in Asia : Proceedings of the Meeting on the Use of Chemicals in Aquaculture in Asia. 

      JR Arthur, CR Lavilla-Pitogo & RP Subasinghe (Eds.) - 2000 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      The use of chemicals is common in various aquaculture systems, as it is in many agricultural practices. However, with growing worldwide awareness of the need for responsible practices in aquaculture, governments and aquaculturists are increasingly concerned with the effects of the use of chemicals in aquaculture, especially those which appear likely to be hazardous to man, cultured stock and/or the environment. The need to synthesize and disseminate information on the use and management of double prime aquachemicals double prime was recognized by the Fishery Resources Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) Aquaculture Department, who convened double prime The Expert Meeting on the Use of Chemicals in Aquaculture in Asia, double prime which was held 20-22 May 1996 at the SEAFDEC facilities in Tigbauan, Iloilo, the Philippines. Support was provided by FAO, SEAFDEC and the Canadian International Development Agency s (CIDA) ASEAN Fund. The World Health Organization (WHO) supported the participation of a human health expert. The meeting was attended by 27 participants and more than 70 observers from the public and private sectors of 20 countries. Among the attendees were representatives from the Network of Aquaculture Centres in Asia-Pacific (NACA), the Fish Health Section of the Asian Fisheries Society (FHS/AFS), the Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences (JIRCAS), the GESAMP Working Group on Environmental Impacts of Coastal Aquaculture, and the ICES Working Group on Environmental Interactions of Mariculture. The results of this expert workshop are presented in this volume. They include the texts of presentations on a wide range of topics (thematic reviews) related to the use of chemicals in aquaculture, with emphasis on the Asian Region, as well as country overview papers summarizing the use of aquachemicals in Asian countries. The contributions of the selected participants during the meeting are contained in this volume.

      Nutritional diseases 

      CR Lavilla - In GD Lio-Po, CR Lavilla & ER Cruz-Lacierda (Eds.), Health Management in Aquaculture, 2001 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      Diagnosis of nutritional diseases is difficult because many signs exhibited by fish are non-specific and most nutritional deficiencies are hard to define. A compilation of data on feed composition and feeding management, as well as husbandry practices, are needed to define a case. Most of data on fish and shrimp nutritional diseases were gathered under experimental conditions. Under farm conditions, most of that definition would be clouded with errors in husbandry practices or secondary infection. Therefore, attempts to diagnose nutritional diseases should be carefully done using every available technique to define the case.
