Workshop on Biofloc Technology and Shrimp Disease December 2013 Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Workshop on Biofloc Technology and Shrimp Disease December 2013 Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Disease continues to be one of the biggest challenges facing the global marine shrimp farming industry. Over the past thirty years improving shrimp farming technologies have enabled increasing intensification, improved growth rates and more sustainable farming practices. Nevertheless, catastrophic disease outbreaks have plagued growers in major producing countries worldwide culminating in the current epidemic of Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Disease.

An expanding number of anecdotal observations from production systems along with limited controlled research results, suggest that biofloc systems help to reduce incidence of shrimp and fish disease outbreaks. It has been suggested that this may be related to more stable and broad based microbial communities in these systems. Though intriguing, the reliability and scope of the data is limited and contrary examples have been reported.

The objective reporting, responsible and balanced consideration of the information available by members of the professional aquaculture community can provide a foundation for the establishment of research priorities and practical applications which may be applied towards holistic solutions for the grave disease problems currently facing the industry.

The goal of this workshop was to gather a group of interested and experienced people to discuss the issue, to summarize what we know and to define the major information gaps. In light of these presentations and discussions workshop outputs may serve to highlight recommended research priorities and potential practical means to reduce disease outbreaks.

Rather late finding and posting this, but the report from this workshop is a great resource on shrimp health and recent research in shrimp system management

With so much attention now being paid to sustainability issues, this is an excellent case study for teachers and students looking at the implementation of the Global Reporting Initiative in the aquaculture sector

Aquaculture in Motion 2013 - FEAP

Aquaculture in Motion 2013 - FEAP | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

FEAP organised the 2nd edition of 'Aquaculture in Motion',  Wednesday 6th of November in Le Méridien Hotel in Brussels. This year the event focussed on the ‘Strategic Guidelines for the Sustainable Development of European Aquaculture’ that were published by the European Commission in April 2013. These Guidelines aim to assist the EU Member States to define national targets while taking account of their circumstances, institutional arrangements and relative positions in terms of aquaculture activities. While the aims to promote aquaculture are intended to be achieved through a voluntary open process of coordination, it is also proposed, where appropriate, that common objectives be identified, alongside measurable indicators for progress.


In providing a focus on the need for quantified targets and relevant indicators, Aquaculture in Motion intends to stimulate the identification of Best Practice for the key performance indicators that need to be agreed as measures of progress and development. Moving European aquaculture forward with successful sustainable strategies was the target of this year’s Aquaculture in Motion.
