Asian aquaculture has many a success and some failures. There had been many a review on Global Aquaculture and Asian Aquaculture, and in essence all these reviews have dealt with the trends per se, but have not attempted, explicitly, to address the main research issues and needs to sustain Asian aquaculture and specifically to explore how aquaculture research can contribute to poverty reduction into the first quarter of the 21st century. Equally, there had been reviews on the impacts of improvements in aquaculture, but these are also based on single commodity studies/ evaluations. Asian aquaculture will have to be innovative and also ensure social responsibility if it were to develop further, contribute to poverty alleviation and well being of the poor rural communities. It is in this context that identification of research priorities becomes imperative.
IDRC and NACA convened a workshop to identify the main research issues and needs to sustain Asian aquaculture into the first quarter of the 21st century, and also to bring them to the notice of relevant planners, managers and policy makers, and potential donors. The workshop was held in Rayong, Thailand from 4-7 June 2007. This report contains the issues papers drafted in preparation for the meeting and a summary of the discussions.
