Video lectures: Regional Training Course on Culture-based Fisheries in Inland Waters https://enaca.org/?id=939&title=videos-regional-training-course-on-culture-based-fisheries-in-inland-waters

This collection contains video recordings of the lectures from the Regional Training Course on Culture-based Fisheries in Inland Waters, held at Nha Trang University, Vietnam. The objective of the course was to provide participants with the skills to assist local communities to plan and manage culture-based fisheries; a relatively simple and low cost technology that can deliver nutritional and economic benefits to rural communities with few livelihood options. The course was sponsored by the United Nations University Fisheries Training Programme.

First training course on culture-based fisheries held in Nha Trang, Vietnam https://enaca.org/?id=935&title=first-training-course-on-culture-based-fisheries-held-in-nha-trang-vietnam

The first ever Regional Training Course on Culture-based Fisheries in Inland Waters was held at Nha Trang University from 30 October to 8 November. The objective of the course was to provide participants with the skills to assist local communities to plan and manage culture-based fisheries. These practices are an example of a relatively simple and low cost technology that can deliver nutritional and economic benefits to rural communities, which often have few livelihood options.

Urgent update on possible worldwide spread of tilapia lake virus (TiLV) https://enaca.org/?id=870&title=urgent-update-on-possible-worldwide-spread-of-tilapia-lake-virus-tilv

Recently, we released a warning of TiLV in Thailand and an improved RT-PCR detection methodology. The Fish Health Platform in Centex, BIOTEC/Mahidol University has also obtained positive test results for TiLV in other Asian countries where it has not yet been reported. Many countries have been translocating tilapia fry/fingerlings prior to and even after the description of TiLV. We have prepared a map listing countries with confirmed reports of TiLV infections and 43 other countries that we believe have imported infected fish.

Participatory market chain approach: An unidentified sustainable supply chain model to boost fish nurseries https://enaca.org/?id=824&title=participatory-market-chain-approach-an-unidentified-sustainable-supply-chain-model-to-boost-fish-nurseries

In Nepal, low quality and seasonal access to fish seed is an important restriction on the development of the aquaculture sector. Commercialisation of fish farming cannot progress rapidly in the absence of critical inputs and a regular supply of quality fish seed is an integral requirement for the transition of fish farming from a subsistence activity to a commercial enterprise. Participatory market chain approaches are a key tool for the social and economic improvement of farmers and market participants.

Status of aquaculture feed and feed ingredient production and utilisation in Nepal https://enaca.org/?id=897&title=status-of-aquaculture-feed-and-feed-ingredient-production-in-nepal In mountain and hilly regions rainbow trout is the main fish species cultivated whereas carps, tilapia and pangasius are cultivated in the inner terai and terai region. Around 12,000 tonnes of pellet feed is used in aquaculture, of which about one third is imported from India. Around 60% of carps are fed with pellets or homemade feed. Around 40% of carp farmers, mainly small-scale, do not use any types of artificial feed but rely upon natural productivity of ponds.
