Better management practices for monosex tilapia seed production: An illustrated guide

The booklet explains the better management practices (BMP) for producing high-quality genetically improved farmed tilapia (GIFT) monosex seed. These simple and low-cost methods have been tested and proven over five years of research and development in Timor-Leste. The goal is to support the scaling of fish farming to contribute to food and nutrition security. The booklet is intended as a resource for governments, I/NGOs and private sectors involved in tilapia seed production and grow-out systems in the tropics across the Asia-Pacific region.

Making land-based aquaculture in Timor-Leste nutrition-sensitive

This nutrition brief outlines the rationale and focus of the Partnership for Aquaculture Development in Timor-Leste Phase 2 (PADTL2) project for enhancing the nutritional benefits of scaling out tilapia farming for targeted Timorese communities. The PADTL2 project (2020–2023) adopts a nutrition-sensitive approach focused on increasing the availability, accessibility, and consumption of fish.

Basic biosecurity manual for tilapia hatchery technicians in Bangladesh (Bangla version)

With the onset of Tilapia Lake Virus (TiLV) outbreaks in several Asian countries, WorldFish, in collaboration with Bangladesh’s Department of Fisheries, has developed a program to improve biosecurity in the tilapia industry throughout the country. As the first step, a training program has been designed and conducted to train a group of specialists called Master Trainers on improving tilapia hatchery biosecurity. This manual is a result of that program.

Raising awareness of antimicrobial resistance in rural aquaculture practice in Bangladesh through digital communications: a pilot study

One of the key strategic objectives of the World Health Organisation’s global antimicrobial resistance (AMR) action plan is to improve public awareness and understanding of this issue. Very few AMR awareness campaigns have targeted the animal production sector, particularly in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) where rural communities can be geographically difficult to access via traditional face-to-face community engagement methods. Aquaculture is a major food production industry in Bangladesh and across Asia, an area which poses a significant risk to global AMR dissemination.

Aquaculture: Increasing income, diversifying diets, and empowering women in Bangladesh

The project Aquaculture: Increasing Income, Diversifying Diets, and Empowering Women in Bangladesh and Nigeria” funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation. The 50-month long project aims to improve the sustainable livelihoods through economic improvement, nutrition enhancement and empowerment of women for a large number of smallholder farmers and other stakeholders linked to the aquaculture value chains in the North West of Bangladesh.

Effects of aflatoxin B1 on reproductive performance of farmed Nile tilapia

This study evaluated the effect of dietary aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) on growth, milt and egg quality in matured Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus). Triplicate groups of Nile tilapia (initial body weight 24.1 ± 2.6 g) were fed with either of four diets (Diets 1 to 4) designed to contain 0, 20, 200 and 2000 μg AFB1 kg−1 diets for 24 weeks. After 24 weeks of AFB1 exposure, growth was significantly (P <0.05) different between the control and the AFB1 exposed treatments in both sexes.
