Pangasius production in Vietnam is widely known as a success story in aquaculture, the fastest growing global food system because of its tremendous expansion by volume, value and the number of international markets to which Pangasius has been exported in recent years.
During the 1930s, people in the Lake Chilwa Basin in Malawi had to cope with both the drying up of Lake Chilwa and the global economic depression. We chose to describe this confluence on Chisi Island as the ‘double crisis,’ and it may at first glance seem obvious, but on examination becomes quite complex. In the case of the Lake Chilwa, the colonial administration introduced cotton production on the dry lake bed to boost the economy of Nyasaland in the face of the economic depression. However, the people of Chisi Island successfully resisted cotton farming.
This paper summarizes the major findings in modelling and analysing agroecosystems using ECOPATH.
This report resulting from 3 years of surveys details the relative contribution of fish to wealth, nutrition, labor, resilience and health among rural Cambodians.
This report details the components of the fish trade sector in Cambodia. The main studies on the socioeconomic value of fish are critically reviewed from a methodological perspective.
This report, based on one year of surveys, details fish prices in Cambodia at the level of fishermen, traders and exporters. Most valuable species are detailed, as well as the average price of a tonne of fish.
The development of genomic markers is described for Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, using the Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT) genotype-by-sequencing platform. A total of 13 215 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers and 12 490 silicoDArT (dominant) markers were identified from broodstock of two selective breeding programs [Genetically Improved Farmed Tilapia (GIFT) strain from Malaysia and the Abbassa strain from Egypt]. Over 10 000 SNPs were polymorphic in either strain, and 2985 and 3087 showed strain-specific polymorphisms for the GIFT and Abbassa strains respectively.
This report provides updated estimates of the aquaculture production in Cambodia. The six main aquaculture production systems are reviewed, and trends are analyzed.
In Solomon Islands, networks consisting of multiple partners are gaining momentum because of their potential to improve the capacity of communities, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and government stakeholders to achieve their goals. Many organizations see the value of creating, leading and being a part of networks, and there are some examples of where these investments have led to bigger or more widespread outcomes than organizations could have achieved on their own.
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has emerged as a global fish producer, owing to the rapid growth of aquaculture in Southeast Asia and its large offshore fishing fleet. Fish is a regional commodity that is traded globally, and this region is at the frontline of the global trend toward meeting seafood demand by 2050. Fisheries and aquaculture are increasingly becoming a primary source of protein and micronutrients, foreign exchange, livelihoods and well-being for the population in the region.
