Shrimp farming is an evolving sector of agriculture that creates important economic
opportunities in many rural communities plagued by under and unemployment. This
water farming practice relies on the wise and responsible use of coastal natural
resources and habitats. The long-term, local success of shrimp farming is also influenced
by global market forces, consumer preferences and international food safety standards.
Advances depend on accessibility of critical research, educational and laboratory services.
Myanmar was hit by Cyclone Nargis in May 2008 with winds
of 190km/hour and an enormous sea surge. It destroyed
houses and even whole villages and caused massive
fl ooding with an offi cially estimated death toll of 140,000
people and the livelihoods of 2.4 million people seriously
affected. I outlined issues relating to small-scale aquaculture
in articles in previous columns (‘Myanmar revisited’ in the
January-March 2009 issue and ‘Small-scale aquaculture
in the Ayeyarwady Delta’ in the April-June 2009 issue).

Nutrition and Fish Health is a “Ncomthelafield ofFishformationimal pi tion in by experts in of aquatic an health and aquatic animal nutrition. This is the first such effort that relates the importance of nutritional wellbeing to the health of aquatic animals and their susceptibility to infectious diseases, and the ability of their immune systems to resist or control diseases.
"Of all the literature I use while preparing field guides for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Nelson's Fishes of the World is, by far, the one I refer to most often. [This] book is a standard reference . . . I continue to use it extensively in the ichthyology courses I teach, particularly in laboratory sessions."

In order to overcome the limitation of land available for aquaculture in the central costal region of
Vietnam and to reduce organic pollution in traditional integrated fish farming, a new method was
developed called the ‘improved VAC’ In traditional VAC systems the manure from farm animals is
released into fish ponds whereas in the ‘Improved VAC’ the manure is used for earthworm culture.
The worm production is then used to feed high value fish species in tanks.
The importance of the shrimp industry
Shrimp production area is the second largest exporter of Bangladesh after ready made
garments with a market share of about 5% of total exports of Bangladesh in 1990. in
FY2003 shrimp exports reached 297.04 million is 4.54% of total
export. Market share in total exports of shrimp export earnings from fish and fish products
nearly 90% (2003). More than 2 million people are involved in upstream and
downstream activities related to the domestic shrimp industry - culture, harvesting,
processing, export and other support activities....

Aquaculture is a general term for the resource, giving the human animal from the environment and human exploitation, aquaculture harvest used for food, raw materials or sold on the market. In the aquatic species, most commonly used fishing activities, aquaculture and exploitation of fish.
If better management (BMP) was adopted in Vietnam there is evidence that the current trends and past environmental degradation can be stopped and even reversed, and shrimp production efficiency can be increased.

Genetic improvement of fish species is considered a priority area for research and development by the government of Viet Nam, particularly in the context of rural development, food security and poverty alleviation. The current proposal has been developed in consultation with Vietnamese staff of participating institutions. The project builds upon the existing collaborative links between Deakin University and the Research Institutes of Aquaculture (RIAs) in Viet Nam.
To obtain the best practical diet (in terms growth rate, survival rate, feed conversion ratio and water quality) which can replace the Vital feed (an expensive feed for Kuruma prawn) and trash fish under laboratory conditions.
1. Conduct Experiment 1: to test three practical diets: a) the "best" diet from Vu-anh Tuan' s PhD research; b) Diet a) plus additives (e.g., vitamins and minerals); and c) Diet b) with further supplement (e.g., vitamins and minerals plus mixed enzymes).
Each participant was presented with a workshop folder containing introductory material and
printed versions of all power-point presentations. In addition each participant was given a CD
containing PDF copies of all presentations, PDF copies of the National Research Council’s
Nutrient Requirements of Fish (NRC 1993) and an FAO publication titled The Nutrition &
Feeding of Farmed Fish & Shrimp (Ed. Albert G.J. Tacon 1987).
