The establishment of a national breeding program for genetically improved Nile tilapia and the development of models for private and public sector partnerships for seed multiplication and distribution

Egypt faces a growing population and shrinking supplies of water. The Ministry of Agriculture recognizes that increasing crop and livestock production per unit of water and land is an essential priority. Fish has been identified as one of the two most important livestock sub-sectors for future national food security. However, to meet the growing demand for fish in the face of static returns from capture fisheries, new supplies will have to come from aquaculture and increasing the productivity of already existing fish farms.
 

Feed the Future Aquaculture technical assistance brings more profit

Ensan Ali is a fish nursery owner of Pateng village, Tungibaria union, Barisal sadar upazila, Barisal district. He quit the previous job to take over the lead of the farming for his family of seven members.

Simple Technology Improves Hatchery Production Scenario

Situated in southwestern Bangladesh, Jessore district is an important source of fish seed in the country. Most of the private hatcheries are located here; they use underground water in their brood and nursery ponds and incubation jars.

Mobile Fish Hatchery and PCR tested shrimp seeds radically increases Spawn and shrimp production in Bangladesh

The Halda River is the best pure Indian carp breeding river in Bangladesh and the major source of naturally produced carp fry. But traditional method of egg hatching often leads to low hatching and survival rates of spawn.

Milt Bank can double fish hatchery production in Bangladesh

Fish hatcheries of Bangladesh have started using milt purchased from Milt Bank that can revolutionize the country’s fish production. Hatcheries of Bangladesh maintain similar numbers of male and female brood fish or outsource males to produce fry.

Simple technology changed fish hatchery production scenario in Bangladesh

Most of the fish hatcheries of Bangladesh are situated at Jessore district. Oxygen concentration in the water of these hatcheries is very low and carbon dioxide level is higher than desired.

Selecting the best tilapia strain to maximize productivity

The Philippines derives substantial benefits from its aquatic and fisheries resources. The contribution to the country’s total fish production from aquaculture has consistently increased, outpacing growth in both the small-scale and commercial fishery sectors.
 

Unleashing the potential of GIFT tilapia on the Indian subcontinent

This project involves the establishment of a satellite nucleus for the GIFT strain of tilapia in India, the design and conduct of a genetic improvement program for this strain, the development of dissemination strategies, and the enhancement of local capacity in the areas of selective breeding and genetics. The development and dissemination of a high yielding tilapia strain possessing desirable production characteristics is expected to bring about notable economic benefits for the country.
