World Brackishwater Aquaculture Conference

BRAQCON 2019 will provide a unique platform for people involved in brackishwater aquaculture and fisheries, nationally and internationally. Sharing of experience and research advancements in the frontier areas would facilitate maximum utilisation, cultivation, conservation and development of aquatic resources. The conference would elicit interest among young researchers and scientists to undertake studies and research to further open up new blue growth avenues for a better world.

Fisheries and aquaculture are expected to contribute significantly to the food security and nutrition for the projected global population of 9.7 billion by 2050. Brackishwater aquaculture, particularly shrimp farming, is one of the most dynamic and fastest growing food producing sectors contributing substantially to the economy and sustainability of coastal communities worldwide. Sustainable development of aquaculture, especially brackishwater aquaculture, should be planned in harmony with the ecosystem that supports farming systems.

BRAQCON 2019 is expected to “THINK GLOBALLY” for development of aquaculture with strong R&D inputs, and “ACT LOCALLY” for implementing responsible fisheries and aquaculture.

A comparison of communal and separate rearing of families in selective breeding of common carp (Cyprinus carpio): Responses to selection

The genetic response in growth traits in a selection program for increased harvest weight in a common carp population in Vietnam is reported. A base population (G0) was established from six carp stocks using single pair mating. Selection was based on high ...

Differences in sexual size dimorphism among farmed tilapia species and strains undergoing genetic improvement for body weight

Many tilapia (Oreochromis spp.) farmers produce all-male populations because of the superior growth rate of males compared to females. To investigate differences in body weight at harvest of males and females among different tilapia strains, we analyzed ...
