Shrimp Health Management brochures provide better management practices (BMPs) in a reader friendly format. These brochures were prepared as extension materials through the village based demonstration programme by the Marine Products Export Development Authority of India and NACA. The programme continues building success and involved a total of 29 villages and 29 Aquaclubs in five Indian states (Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu, Orissa, Gujarat, and Karnataka) in 2006. The brochures cover:

  • A summary of the shrimp BMP programme.
  • Pond preparation.
  • Selection of good quality seed.
  • Water quality management.
  • Good feed management.
  • Pond bottom management.
  • Shrimp health management.
  • Harvesting and post harvest handling.
  • Mangrove plantation and conservation.

NACA publishes technical papers and manuals for a wide variety of farming systems and related environmental and social issues. Many of these provide guidance on better management practices with a view to improving crop outcomes and on-farm resource utilisation efficiency. By using inputs such as feed and power more efficiently, farmers can simultaneously improve their profitability and environmental performance.
