As more than 80 percent of Bangladeshi shrimp exports already go to EU markets, a consultation meeting involving buyers from the bloc and Bangladesh industry stakeholders and authorities was held at the end of last month in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
El cultivo de tilapia en Bangladesh se ha desarrollado considerablemente desde 1999, basada en la cepa de Tilapia Cultivada Genéticamente Mejorada (GIFT) de la tilapia del Nilo (Oreochromis niloticus) introducida de Malasia y en el importante trabajo de investigación del
Tilapia aquaculture in Bangladesh has developed significantly since 1999, based on the Genetically Improved Farmed Tilapia (GIFT) strain of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) introduced from Malaysia and on the significant genetic improvement research work by the Bangladesh Fisheries Research Institute
