Jump-start aquaculture business with coaching from experts
MetadataShow full item record
Fish farms and hatcheries need proper management to prosper, thus, experts from the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC/AQD) are offering aquaculture trainings with first-hand coaching to fish farmers, businessmen, and aquaculturists. The aquaculture trainings have lectures, practical activities, and field trips with about 80 percent of the training sessions devoted to practical activities supervised by SEAFDEC/AQD scientists and experienced personnel. These training courses offered by SEAFDEC/AQD include hatchery, nursery, and grow-out culture of commodities such as catfish, giant freshwater prawn, tilapia, sandfish, carp, abalone, seaweeds, marine fish species (grouper, milkfish, pompano, rabbitfish, sea bass, and snapper), and mangrove crab. Site selection, design and construction of a hatchery and a pond are also among the special topics included in the training courses.
