Present status of medium-saline ‘bheri’ fishery and integrated mangrove aquaculture in West Bengal, India, Part I https://enaca.org/?id=1259&title=present-status-of-medium-saline-bheri-fishery-and-integrated-mangrove-aquaculture-in-west-bengal-part-i

Since the late 1960s, brackishwater rural aquaculture in West Bengal grew and improved at a fast rate, from an extensive method of farming to a modified-extensive method. The indigenous bheri fishery is a well-known extensive aquaculture system throughout all coastal states of India. Bheri fishery isn’t a capital-intensive practice. This article describes farming practices in bheri systems in West Bengal, India, including their integration with mangrove aquaculture. A second part of this article will be published in the next issue.

FAO/NACA workshop to developing a regional strategy for aquatic organism health using progressive management pathways https://enaca.org/?id=1252&title=fao%2Fnaca-workshop-to-developing-a-regional-strategy-for-aquatic-organism-health-using-progressive-management-pathways

On 28-29 November FAO and NACA collaborated on a virtual workshop to develop a regional strategy for aquatic organism health, using a progressive management pathway for improving aquaculture biosecurity. The workshop was held under the auspices of the project “Responsible use of fisheries and aquaculture resources for sustainable development component 3: Biosecurity and health management”. The workshop involved 31 experts from 16 countries, including national focal points, FAO and NACA. The objectives of the workshop were to: Present and analyse country responses to a self-assessment survey on biosecurity and health management capacity and performance; to provide guuidance to country participants on conducting a SWOT analysis; and to prepare a detailed plan for Phase II of the initiative.

Recent trends in seed production of stinging catfish, Heteropneustes fossilis, in India https://enaca.org/?id=1232&title=recent-trends-in-seed-production-of-stinging-catfish%2C-heteropneustes-fossilis%2C-in-india

Hatchery production of stinging catfish (Heteropneustes fossilis) seed is increasing as it is a good fish species favoured by consumers due to its high protein and lower fat content. Stinging catfish naturally breeds in the monsoon season, and is found gravid in the wild during July-September. In captivity it can be successfully produced using either induced or natural breeding techniques. This article summarises what is known about stinging catfish biology, and methods for its captive breeding, rearing of larvae and fry, feeding strategies and health concerns, to aid production of seed of this valuable catfish.

A success story of ornamental fish farming as a tool for alternative livelihood of tribal women in Keonjhar District, Odisha, india https://enaca.org/?id=1230&title=a-success-story-of-ornamental-fish-farming-as-a-tool-for-alternative-livelihood-of-tribal-women-in-keonjhar-district%2C-odisha%2C-india

In Odisha, India, ornamental fish farming, culture and seed production are being utilised by self help groups to provide livelihoods for poor people in rural communities. The objective of self help groups is to sustainably increase the income of poor families to bring them above the poverty line. This is being achieved through a process of social mobilisation, training and capacity building, and provision of some necessary facilities. This article documents the evolution of ornamental fish farming by the Pragati Self Help Group in Bhatunia Village.

Green water technology as an essential support to larval rearing of hilsa shad https://enaca.org/?id=1227&title=green-water-technology-as-an-essential-support-to-larval-rearing-of-hilsa-shad

Green water technology is a technique that promotes phytoplankton to grow profusely, and includes several methods by which desirable microalgae are produced for the purpose of rearing larval fish and crustaceans. Naturally occurring phytoplankton, which serve as feed for fish and crustacean larvae, are grown and proliferate under a controlled system. This article describes the use of greenwater and co-feeding techniques in the rearing of hilsa, Tenualosa ilisha, principally making use of Chlorella and rotifers.

Dynamics of small-scale aquaculture development in India: A review https://enaca.org/?id=1226&title=dynamics-of-small-scale-aquaculture-development-in-india%3A-a-review

Development of small-scale aquaculture has dominated development discourse because of its potential to fight malnutrition and poverty, to ensure food security and enhance the socio-economic condition of people living at the bottom of the pyramid. Aquaculture has contributed to strengthening livelihoods and food security in southeast Asian countries, contributing to the livelihood of the poor farmers through improved food supply, income and employment.
