WorldFish is an international, nonprofit research organization that harnesses the potential of fisheries and aquaculture to reduce hunger and poverty. Our publications database contains WorldFish publications and references to WorldFish research published in refereed journals and periodicals.
With fish protein supplies levelling off in many countries as limits to capture fisheries production are reached, aqua-culture is being viewed as the primary means of achieving the incremental growth in aquatic food supply necessary to keep up with continued increases in population and demand.
Issues related to assessing the social feasibility of technology for coastal aquaculture in the tropics are examined. Appropriate community-based aquaculture systems, community participation and co-existence with large-scale systems are discussed.
