Magical role of live foods in boosting spawn survival of climbing perch: A success in the farmer’s field https://enaca.org/?id=1199&title=magical-role-of-live-foods-in-boosting-spawn-survival-of-climbing-perch%3A-a-success-in-the-farmer%E2%80%99s-field

Climbing perch inhabit water bodies ranging from fresh to brackish waters across a wide range of environments, and are widely distributed throughout south and southeast Asia through to southern China. In India it is prized both as a foodfish and as a traditional medicinal food. This article describes the induced breeding of climbing perch and the interaction of scientists and farmers to improve survival of larvae and fry in through the use of live feeds (rotifer) in small-scale hatcheries in India.

Some facts on cannibalism in Wallago attu and its management during captive seed production https://enaca.org/?id=1180&title=some-facts-on-cannibalism-in-wallago-attu-and-its-management-during-captive-seed-production

Wallago attu is a large catfish reaching 45 kg found in the Indian subcontinent, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia. Early attempts at captive production encountered high losses due to cannibalism during early life stages. This article discusses the causative factors governing cannibalism in this catfish, including rapid transfer from live to commercial feed, size differences during stocking, seasonal changes, feeding at long intervals, high density rearing, feed distribution, feeding method and size of feed, and management strategies for minimising losses during the seed rearing period.

Imparting skill on formulated fish feed preparation to women’s self-help groups in villages – an experience https://enaca.org/?id=1178&title=imparting-skill-on-formulated-fish-feed-preparation-to-women%E2%80%99s-self-help-groups-in-villages

Preparation of locally made floating pelleted fish feed can be a profitable and sustainable income generating entrepreneurial activity for women's self-help groups in rural areas. Using such feed can also help small-scale marginal fish farmers to improve production and reduce their operating costs. This article describes initiatives to train women's self-help groups in formulated feed production in West Bengal, India.

Global Conference on Aquaculture Millennium +20 https://enaca.org/?id=1175&title=global-conference-on-aquaculture-millennium-%2B20

The GCA +20 was successfully held as a hybrid event from 22-25 September, with physical participation at the venue in Shanghai, China, and international participation via video conference. A total of 1,728 people participated in the event, of which 500 were physically present in Shanghai. A key output from the GCA +20, the Shanghai Declaration is a call to action that highlights the principles and strategic pathways to maximise the contribution of sustainable aquaculture in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, with a special focus on “Leaving no one behind”.

Join us for the SDG-aligned Artemia Aquaculture Workshop, 22 September https://enaca.org/?id=1173&title=join-us-for-the-sdg-aligned-artemia-aquaculture-workshop%2C-22-september

Join us online at the SDG-aligned Artemia Aquaculture Workshop, which will be held on 22 September, via Zoom. With the expansion of hatchery production, the demand for Artemia cysts has continued to increase and annual consumption is now estimated at 3,500 – 4,000 tonnes, underpinning the production of over 10 million tonnes of high-value aquaculture species. Approximately 90 percent of the current Artemia production is harvested from inland salt lakes. The purpose of the Artemia workshop is to explore needs and opportunities for a new international initiative to guarantee a more sustainable provision of Artemia, both from natural sources and from controlled extractive Artemia farming integrated with salt production and other fish/crustacean aquaculture.
