Inland fishery resource enhancement and conservation in Thailand

The production from inland capture fisheries in Thailand is about 1 million tonnes per annum. Engineering the environment and fish stocking are the two major practices adopted, and closed-season fishing as well as control of fishing gears are used for conservation purposes. Fish stocking programs date back to the 1950s have been continuously conducted. This presentation provides a historical perspective on stock enhancement practices in Thailand since the 1950s.

Report of the Fortaleza FAO/NACA/Government of Brazil Expert Workshop on Guidelines for Aquaculture Certification

The workshop was the second in a series of expert meetings to assist the development of guidelines for aquaculture certification. The workshop gave stakeholders in the Americas a unique opportunity to get together with international stakeholders to discuss certification and in particular the development of the draft FAO/NACA guidelines for aquaculture certification. The workshop identified a strong need for an aquaculture certification guideline document to inform and guide stakeholders towards responsible and sustainable aquaculture. 

Standard operating procedures for health certification and quarantine measures for the responsible movement of live food finfish within ASEAN

These standard operating procedures were developed to reduce the risk of spread of trans-boundary disease of aquatic animals through the movement of live food fish. The procedures are a set of documents for health certification and quarantine measures to be used by competent authorities in trade among ASEAN member countries. The procedures recognise the existing variation in capacity between ASEAN members and have been designed so that they can be implemented across varying policy and legal frameworks.

Report of the Bangkok FAO/NACA/Government of Thailand Expert Workshop on Guidelines for Aquaculture Certification

In 2006 the COFI Sub-Committee on Aquaculture noted that many non-governmental certification schemes have resulted in higher costs for producers without delivering significant benefits to small-scale producers. An international round of consultations were commissioned to discuss the development of globally accepted certification guidelines for aquaculture production, which could provide more guidance and serve as a basis for harmonisation and mutual recognition. This is the report of the first consultation workshop, held in Bangkok, March 2007.
