Safe use of pesticide in rice-fish culture

Results of the study on the relative safety of nine different pesticides: Diazinon 40% EC, Diazinon 10 G, Elsan 50% EC, Sumithion 50% EC, Furadan 3 G, Padan 50% SP, Kitazin 48% EC, Kitasin 17% G and EPN 45% EC for various fish species: Cyprinus carpio, Labeo rohita, Oreochromis mossambicus, Channa punctata, Clarias batrachus and Anabas testudineus used in rice-fish culture are presented and discussed.

The role of ornamental goldfish Carassius auratus in transfer of some viruses and ectoparasites to cultured fish in Egypt: comparative ultra-pathological studies

Goldfish, common carp and Nile tilapia were sampled between September 2002 and May 2003 to investigate lesions induced by viral diseases and ectoparasites. Goldfish exhibited neoplasms, Dermocystidium sp., Ichthyophthirius multifiliis (Ich), Trichodina reticulata, Lernaea cyprinacea and systemic infections. Neoplastic and systemic infections in goldfish were associated with viral infection. Oreochromis niloticus and Cyprinus carpio were mainly infested with several species of Trichodina and monogeneans. The presence of Dermocystidium sp.

Review of training for the period 1999-2009: WorldFish Aquaculture Research and Training Center, Abbassa, Egypt

The WorldFish Aquaculture Research and Training Center is located outside Abbassa, a typical village in Egypt's Nile delta. The WorldFish Center launched its regional research and training activities in 1998. Courses were held in the center from 1999 to 2009. The growth in training over this period reflects the growth in aquaculture in Egypt and globally, the need for trained technicians, and the growing reputation of the Center in this field.

Review of environmental impact assessment and monitoring in aquaculture in Asia-Pacific

This review is prepared as part of the FAO Project “Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and monitoring in aquaculture”. The review provides a compilation, review and synthesis of existing EIA and environmental monitoring procedures and practices in aquaculture in the Asia-Pacific region, the largest aquaculture-producing region in the world. This review, as in other regions, gives special consideration to four areas related to EIA and monitoring in aquaculture including: (1) the requirements (2) the practice (3) the effectiveness and (4) suggestions for improvements.

Progress report of aquaculture technology transfer through NGOs and feedback to research program fro the period Aug 1992-Jun 1994

The Fisheries Research Institute with the technical assistance of International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM) has developed low-cost aquaculture practices, through on-station and on-farm research. These studies have shown that farmer's fish productions and incomes could be increased manifold, through appropriate management practices.

Producing tilapia in small cage in West Africa

This document is part of a series of 5 technical manuals produced by the Challenge Program Project CP34 “Improved fisheries productivity and management in tropical reservoirs”. The Water Research Institute (WRI) in Akosombo, Ghana, is working to bring cage aquaculture technology to smallholder farmers. The stocking, feeding and cage-construction technology piloted by WRI is now being widely adopted in the Lower Volta basin in Ghana. The results of WRI research over the period 2005-2009 are presented here as a guide to potential investors.

Probiotics and aquaculture

Aquaculture has become the fastest growing sector of food production in the world. Despite the encouraging trends, several constraints have a negative impact on the growth of aquaculture. Among those, diseases are the primary limiting factors. Bacterial diseases are responsible for heavy mortality in both wild and cultured fish. Antibiotics are used to control such infection but may result in development and spread of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria and resistance genes and occurrence of antimicrobial residues in fish tissues.
