Culture-based fisheries for food security
There are many initiatives underway which are designed to increase food supply, employment and income opportunities in developing countries, most of which require considerable capital inputs. Often overlooked, are the opportunities to produce more food from the natural productivity of local ecosystems. Culture-based fisheries are one example of a relatively simple and low cost technology which can deliver nutritional and economic benefits to rural communities, which often have few livelihood options.
The first Regional Training Course on Culture-based Fisheries will be held from 29 October to 9 November 2017 in Nha Trang, Vietnam. It will be held on the campus of Nha Trang University. The course is aimed at development professionals and extension officers working in fisheries and aquaculture or with agricultural communities.
