The overall objective of the project is the reduction of poverty in rural areas of Solomon Islands through creation of livelihoods based on sustainable aquaculture. This fits within the over-arching goals of the WorldFish Center in the Pacific to reduce poverty and hunger in rural communities, and with the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources (MFMR) to stimulate rural development and to develop aquaculture.
This 3 volume study examines the feasibility of culturing tilapia in brackishwater in Kuwait.
Mortality rates of reef fishes are typically very high in the first few weeks after settlement. Capture and release of reef fish before or shortly after settlement may provide an opportunity to increase survival. Increasing survival at this stage could be a sustainable way of increasing fisheries resources. visual censuses of juvenile grunts (Haemulidae) during settlement pulses from January to March 2001 and July to September 2001 in Tortola, British Virgin Ilands were used to estimate local post-settlement mortality rates on a back-reef, seagrass/sand halo area.
The main objectives of this project are to provide guidelines for the effective management and development of natural cockle seed resources and their future conservation to supply an expanding cockle industry. To assess the potential for etpansion of the cockle culture industry by improving production from existing culture beds and by establishing culture beds in new areas.
The US-ASEAN Coastal Resources Management Project Team assessed the feasibility of brackish pond aquaculture development in Brunei. More than 2000 ha are identified as high priority sites for fishfarm development. Designs of brackishwater aquaculture farms with P. monodon as the target species, are prepared, together with estimates of development costs. The pond culture systems studied considered appropriate for Brunei are earthen ponds for semi-intensive culture, concrete-lined earthen ponds and fully concreted pond walls, both for intensive culture system.
