This is part 2 of an article describing farming practices in bheri systems in West Bengal, India, including their integration with mangrove aquaculture. 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. Part 2 discusses brackishwater polyculture in South 24 Parganas, including the experiences of farmers implementing an integrated mangrove-aquaculture project, and information on local bheri fisheries derived from published articles.

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.

Recreational fisheries in Uttarakhand https://enaca.org/?id=1243&title=recreational-fisheries-in-uttarakhand

Establishing recreational fisheries in Uttarakhand's highland lakes and river systems offers new opportunities to generate livelihoods and income for hill people. The development of catch-and-release sport fisheries can also contribute to conservation of aquatic biodiversity through development of captive breeding technologies, supportive breeding based stock enhancement, and community participation in management of both fishery and habitat. This article describes established and emerging sport fisheries in the highlands of Uttarakhand including for mahseer, goonch and brown trout. It also addresses as yet unrealised opportunities for establishment of recreational fisheries identified through geoinformatic approaches, and partnerships between local communities and government in natural resource management.

Webinar: Culture-based fisheries for rural development https://enaca.org/?id=1154&title=webinar%3A-culture-based-fisheries-for-rural-development

Join us on 31 May for a free webinar on Culture-based fisheries for rural development, with leading experts from the Asian region. Culture-based fisheries (CBF) are practices to enhance fish stocks in waters that don't have enough natural recruitment to sustain a fishery. CBF practices are usually applied in small water bodies such as village dams and irrigation reservoirs. Fish growth is driven by the natural productivity of the waters, foraging on natural food supplies. The simplicity and low capital requirements of CBF make it easy for farming communities to learn and adopt.

Exotic trout fisheries resources and potentialities in Uttarakhand https://enaca.org/?id=1136&title=exotic-trout-fisheries-resources-and-potentialities-in-uttarakhand-india

Commercial trout farming in Uttarakhand has advanced progressively during the last decade and has become a profitable occupation among the rural masses especially in the colder regimes where no other fish farming has possibilities. The rainbow trout here plays the most dominant role as a commercially important candidate species for culture in this hill locked Himalayan state of India. This article describes the current status of trout fisheries resources and trout aquaculture in Uttarakhand, and their potential further development.
