    Coastal Aquaculture Project for Shrimp and Finfish in Ban Merbok, Kedah, Malaysia - BOBP/REP/20 1984
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper describes the background, objectives, modus operandi and implementation of a coastal aquaculture project in Ban Merbok, Kedah, Malaysia. It was executed by the Department of Fisheries, Government of Malaysia, with technical assistance from the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). Preliminary activities commenced in June 1979 and the project terminated in October 1983. The document describes the pre-culture and culture practices for shrimp and finfish undertaken by the project, the problems encountered, the results obtained; it also outlines the project’s training activities, both in hatchery management and in culture practices. It contains observations on the basis of the project’s experience. The portion of the report dealing with culture trials and hatchery technology is based on the unpublished work of the BOBP consultant master fish farmer Mr. A. K. Rasul and the consultant hatchery technologist, Mr. Niwes Ruangpanit. The BOBP’s tech nical assistance consisted of engineering, design and aquaculture studies in the planning phase; hatchery technology and the pond culture of shrimp and finfish in the operational phase. Up to the end of 1980 technical support inputs were handled on behalf of BOBP by the South China Sea Fisheries Development and Coordination Programme (SCSP).

    Demonstration Of Simple Hatchery Technology For Prawns In Sri Lanka - BOBP/WP/43 1986
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This report describes the facilities and documents the procedures for the operation of a “backyard” hatchery for Penaeid prawns, put up for demonstration and training purposes in Pitipana, Sri Lanka. It concludes that the technology demonstrated is appropriate and that the aims set have been reached; it also identifies the constraints that should be lifted if this hatchery is to become a permanent training facility of the Coastal Aquaculture Research Station at Pitipana. The hatchery was one o f the components of a project aimed at developing a small-scale prawn culture region. The project undertakes trials of prawn culture in pens in the lagoons of Koggala, Negombo and Puttalam. Under the terms of this project, the Ministry of Fisheries, Sri Lanka, renovated and adapted facilities already existing for shrimp breeding, while BOBP contributed expertise, provided some imported equipment and met running costs. This report was compiled by BOB P’s D Reyntjens (Aquaculturist Assoc iate Professional Officer) and is based on the reports of the consultant, Dr K. H. Mohammed, the records maintained at the hatchery, and also on personal observations made in the last quarter of 1985. Mr Samaranayake, Assistant Director of Inland Fisheries and project leader, other team members and Mr. Reyntjens’s colleagues, Mr J. A Janssen and Mr P. Funegaard, also contributed to the project. This paper, and the project it describes, form part of the activities of the small-scale fisheri es project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Authority) and executed by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). The project seeks to develop, demonstrate and promote technologies and methodologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk. The project covers five countries in the region — Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

    Project
    Pen Culture Of Shrimp In The Backwaters Of Killai, Tamil Nadu - BOBP/WP/32
    A Study Of Techno-Economic And Social Feasibility
    1985
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This report describes the findings and recommendation of a technoeconomic and social feasibility study of shrimp pen culture in the backwaters of Killai, Tamil Nadu. It is based on field surveys in the communities of the region in the latter half of 1983 and on three culture trials at Killai undertaken during an earlier 21-month technical programme conducted by BOBP and the Department of Fisheries, Government of Tamil Nadu. The 21-month progranime showed promise of technical viability on pen culture of shrimp. This study was therefore undertaken to focus on problems relating to social and economic feasibility, and thus help plan future state policy on introducing shrimp pen culture to fisherfolk. The study and the paper resulting from it are activities of the smallscale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). The project is funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Authority) and executed by FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nat ions), and covers five countries bordering the Bay of Bengal — Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. The main goals of the project are to develop, demonstrate and promote appropriate technologies and methodologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk and to boost supplies of fish from the small sector in member countries. The author of the paper would like to thank Dr. lan R. Smith (Deputy Director-General, ICLARM, Manila), Mr. I. Rajendran and Mr. V.C. Bose (D irectorate of Fisheries, Government of Tamil Nadu), and Dr. M. Karim (BOBP) for their cooperation in the planning and execution of this study.
