    Aquaculture sector in Asia-Pacific has grown rapidly during the past four decades and contributed significantly to food security, nutrition, livelihood and overall socioeconomic development in the region. Meanwhile, disease problem has become increasingly challenging in aquaculture. Un-prudent and poorly controlled use of anti-microbial in animal disease control in aquaculture can have significant contribution to AMR risk. Although the control over the use of antimicrobial in aquaculture through some regulatory frameworks has been strengthened over the past decade in the region, it is far from adequate and effective in many Asian countries. In order to support the members to effectively address AMR in aquaculture for public health and sustainability of the sector, FAO and Network of Aquaculture Centres in Asia-Pacific (NACA) jointly organized the regional consultation on AMR associated with aquaculture in Asia-Pacific on 4-6 September 2018. This publication documents the conduct of the regional consultation and its outputs, which identified major issues and gaps in tackling AMR issue in aquaculture and recommended desirable interventions and long-term strategy to effective mitigate AMR risk related to aquaculture in the region. The document also includes the seven country case studies on status of use of antimicrobial in aquaculture and the efforts to manage the risks of antimicrobial resistance, which were presented at the regional consultation.

    This report comprises the workshop proceedings and the strategy for regional cooperation that was developed by the participants; the latter was the principal output of the workshop. The major inputs to the discussions to craft the strategy were the country reports that described their priorities in five areas, namely research and technology development, manpower development, extension and information, management and policy; and their own assessment of their weaknesses and strengths in these area s. The deliberations on regional priorities and technical areas for cooperation and potential co-operators in each area were informed by presentations from institutions, projects and agencies that are working or have associations with either or both the Central Asia and Caucasus regions. A significant result of this process is a matrix that matches potential co-operators (provider country or institution) and hosts (recipient country) for various and specific capacity building needs, which were i dentified as common regional or subregional priorities. To start the programme, the workshop recommended seven activities that need to be initiated as soon as possible, as follows: (1) development of regional projects, organization of training/workshops, and capacity development on feed production and management on a pilot scale; (2) provision of technologies and equipment for the development and production of specialized fish feeds for different species from local raw materials; (3) training wo rkshop on project development designed to improve project development skills by actually formulating projects that are based on the identified priorities; (3) an action plan for the upgrading of national laboratories in order to comply with international standards for certification of fish and fish products; (4) workshop on harmonization of institutional management structure and legislation in fisheries and aquaculture in accordance with international fisheries and aquaculture laws/policy for re sponsible fisheries and aquaculture; (5) development of an action plan to identify activities for sharing and providing broodstock and seed material that are of high genetic quality, complemented by training on broodstock management; (6) programmes for increasing and conserving endemic fish stocks in inland water reservoirs; and (7) establishing a working group linked to the TAC (Technical Advisory Committee) of CACFish (Central Asian and Caucasus Regional Commission on Fisheries), to support th e follow-up of the scoping workshop recommendations and immediate action plans. This set of recommendations was addressed to the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and China but should also involve concerned government institutions, technical experts of governments and regional institutions in certain areas, and the CACFish.

    Report of the Regional Workshop on Methods for Aquaculture Policy Analysis, Development and Implementation in Selected Southeast Asian Countries. Bangkok, 9–11 December 2009. 2010

    The Regional Workshop on Methods for Aquaculture Policy Analysis, Development and Implementation in Selected Southeast Asian Countries was convened by FAO and the Network of Aquaculture Centres in Asia and the Pacific (NACA), in response to a request from the Sub-Committee on Aquaculture (New Delhi, 2006). The workshop was also a follow-up to the recommendations of the Expert Consultation on Improving Planning and Policy Development in Aquaculture held in Rome in 2008. It enabled the building of capacity related to aquaculture planning and policy development by encouraging participants to critically reflect on the planning processes undertaken in their countries and on the relevance of the contents of their aquaculture policies. Participation, achievability, accountability, continuity, monitoring and evaluation, and balancing goals were identified as the six key characteristics of sound aquaculture policies. The workshop recommended the holding of similar capacity building workshops at national levels, the follow-up by the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Centre (SEAFDEC) of the issue of regional integration in the aquaculture sector and the dissemination of the FAO technical guidelines for aquaculture policy formulation and implementation, if possible in their Southeast Asian specific version.
