    Feasibility of Restocking and Culture-based Fisheries in Central Asia 2011
    Also available in:

    Culture-based fisheries have been successfully developed across the world in order to increase productivity of capture fisheries, with five to tenfold increases in productivity per hectare not uncommon. Fish farming too has shown to be an important contributor to national food security, rural employment and income generation. Unfortunately, political upheaval, the disruption of historic fish supply chains and limited state budgets have combined to halt many of the restocking and culture-bas ed fisheries programmes in the Central Asian and Caucasus region during the 1990s. This is unfortunate, as a number of important waterbodies in the region offer great potential for such activities. As a consequence, this study was tasked with providing an overview of regional waterbodies and historic and contemporary culture-based fisheries and restocking experiences ¿ using case studies from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan ¿ with a view to suggesting potential ways in which national gover nments and the Central Asian and Caucasus Regional Fisheries and Aquaculture Commission (CACFISH) might support the rehabilitation of culture (and, by extension, capture) fisheries in the region. Seven overarching principles are identified (i.e. ecosystem compatibility, compatibility with other uses, best available science and information, social and economic benefits, collaboration with the culture production sector, the regulatory process, public information) and accompanying recommendation s are made to guide culture-based activity and restocking in the region. The Fourth Intergovernmental Meeting on the Establishment of the Central Asian and Caucasus Regional Fisheries and Aquaculture Commission (Cholpon Ata, Kyrgyzstan, 22 -24 June 2011) discussed and adopted the conclusions and recommendations of this regional study and requested the FAO Secretariat to CACFish to pass them forward to the Inaugural Meeting of the Commission for endorsement by the same Commission.
