    Promotion of Small-scale Shrimp and Prawn Hatcheries in India and Bangladesh - BOBP/REP/66 1994

    The shrimp and prawn culture industries in India and Bangladesh still depend on wild fry. However, expanding production and the trend towards intensification, especially in India, will require the development of hatchery industries in these countries. Since the private sector is likely to be the engine for this development, BOBP undertook activities to transfer smallscale hatchery technology as directly as possible to this sector. In India, this took the form of training small-scale entrepr eneurs in tiger shrimp hatchery technology and providing financial support to the Government of West Bengal for the construction of a demonstration hatchery. Of eight trainees in India, one has set up a shrimp hatchery. The shrimp/prawn hatchery in West Bengal was completed, but not put into production. In Bangladesh, a small-scale demonstration freshwater prawn hatchery was set up in Chittagong District. A new hatchery technology, using brine and a simple recirculating biofilter, was found to be feasible. Both government and private sector participants were trained in the hatchery. Direct assistance in the form of training and equipment was given to four private groups. Three of them completed prawn hatchery construction by the end of 1993 and one of them went into production.

    Report of the Fisheries and Biological Data Preparation Workshop on the Shrimp and Groundfish Fisheries of the North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem 2019

    The Fisheries and Biological Data Preparation Workshop for the Shrimp and Groundfish Fisheries of the North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem (NBSLME) was held in Bridgetown, Barbados 23-25 October, 2018. The meeting brought together 14 participants including fisheries officers, government organizations and FAO. The main objective of the workshop was to provide training on data preparation for stock assessment purposes and fisheries status/trends monitoring, enhance capacities in fisheries data and statistics collection at the national and sub-regional levels, and review status of data collection for the shrimp and groundfish fisheries of the NBSLME. The current state of the Fisheries and Resource Monitoring System (FIRMS) stocks and fisheries inventories for the NBSLME was reviewed and updated with inputs from participants. Ongoing work on the Data Repository and Decision Support System (DSS) for the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems (CLME+) Project and its application in the NBSLME was presented and discussed. A template for recording fisheries and biological data of key species in the NBSLME for stock assessment purposes was reviewed by participants. Furthermore, for each country and fishery, participants reviewed availability of data including, inter alia, time series of landings and fishing effort, length frequencies and socio-economic information. Additionally, a review was made of the biological parameters (e.g. length-weight relationship, growth, maturity) available for key shrimp and groundfish species in the NBSLME and data gaps identified. Information on genetic studies on shrimp and groundfish species in the NBSLME region served as background for discussion on the stock structure
