Considerations about dissemination of improved fish strains

Aquaculture production systems in developing countries are largely based on the use of unimproved species and strains. As knowledge and experience are accumulated in relation to the management, feeding and animal health issues of such production systems, the availability of genetically more productive stock becomes imperative in order to more effectively use resources.

Investing in small-scale aquaculture: the triple bottom line

In 2008 over 90% of global aquaculture production was in developing countries with the industry often dominated by small and medium scale enterprises.
