Polyculture of tilapia with shrimp in China

Polyculture of tilapias (Oreo¬chromis niloticus and 0. mossambicus/O. niloticus hybrid) with shrimp (Penaeus orientalis) has been investigated several times in China since 1981. The results have caused much debate. Oppositionists held that finfish, especially tilapias, would rapidly consume the shrimp postlarvae and juveniles as happened when shrimp were put together with tilapias in a small tank. This article gave an overview of this practice in China.

Out of the factory and into the fish pond: can certification transform Vietnamese Pangasius?

This chapter examines pangasius catfish aquaculture in Vietnam in the context of changing social relations of production, European consumer trends and regulation. In particular we are interested in how the rise of 'sociotechnical' environmental regulatory networks in the form of quality standards and third-party certififcation have altered power relations between consumers and producers across global space.

Making a Difference

Early program achievements: In 2012 improved technologies enhanced productivity of Bangladesh fish ponds and generated: 2) $92m increase in combined annual income 3) $300 per household income from homestead ponds 3) $6000 more income per hectare from commercial fish ponds 4) $2000 more income per hectare from commercial shrimp ponds

Is ANOVA powerful enough for analyzing replicated pond expriments?

Aquaculture pond experiments, like agricultural crop trials, are often designed according to the statistical rules of replication and randomization: several treatments are applied to a number of experimental units (in this case: ponds) after which a certain characteristic (e.g., yield) is measured in every pond. Other factors with a possible effect on the measured characteristic are held at the same constant level as much as possible so as not to disturb treatment effects. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) is used to compare the treatments.

Integrated floating cage aquageoponics system (IFCAS): An innovation in fish and vegetable production for shaded ponds in Bangladesh

Farmer participatory action research was carried out from July to December 2013 to design and construct a technology known as IFCAS (integrated floating cage aquageoponics system) for growing fish and vegetables in shaded ponds in the Barisal region of Bangladesh under the EU funded ANEP (Agriculture and Nutrition Extension Project). This article attempts to assess how this integrated technology fits into the socio-economic conditions of farming households and physical characteristics of the pond.

Development and performance evaluation of sludge remover for intensive aquaculture

Fisheries is an emerging sector in Bangladesh producing about 3.50 million tons of fish annually of which aquaculture accounts for 2.00 million tons. In intensive aquaculture, pond water gets polluted due to high stocking density and large amount of supplemental feeding results in huge accumulation of unused feed and faeces in the pond bottom. The accumulated bottom sludge depletes dissolved oxygen (DO) and releases harmful gases due to excessive use of chemicals and lack of water exchange facilities.
