Aquaculture Asia Magazine is an autonomous publication that gives farmers and scientists in developing countries a voice. Stories largely cover the small-scale aquaculture prevalent in the region and the circumstances of small-scale farmers trying to make ends meet in an increasingly globalised world.
Our readers come from more than 25 countries in Asia. We accept articles on any aspect of aquaculture and the related processing, marketing, economic, environmental and social issues that surround the industry. The views and opinions expressed herein are solely those of the contributors and do not represent the position or policies of NACA. An RSS feed is available if you wish to stay informed of new issues.
NACA publishes a wide range of aquaculture publications including technical manuals, workshop proceedings, better practice guidelines and several serials including Aquaculture Asia Magazine, the NACA Newsletter and the Quarterly Aquatic Animal Disease Report. To keep up to date with developments you could consider subscribing to our free email newsletter service and RSS feed.
