The project produces specific-pathogen-free broodstock with good reproductive performance, fast growth and high survival. More than 60 hatcheries in India have received broodstock from the program.
The culture of many marine fish species requires the concurrent culture of live feed such as algae and microcrustaceans. The addition of copepods to first feeding often improves survival for small-mouthed species.
A large-scale integrated shrimp aquaculture park (iSHARP) project in Malaysia is approaching completion of its first phase. Biosecurity is a priority at iSHARP. The design of each unit allows individual modules or ponds to be “locked down” to prevent disease
