AgroSource 30 Vol 1 (2009): Fish farming in tropical fresh water ponds
The material in this AgroSource is largely based on the experiences of VSO* aquaculture volunteers from the Institute of Aquaculture in Stirling, Scotland who had been involved in agricultural education in Thailand.
It provides a basic introduction to the most important technical aspects of fresh water fisheries. It does not deal with the socio-economic issues involved. Its target readership are those individuals and groups who need basic technical information so they can plan how best to implement their future aquaculture activities.
his AgroSource is particularly useful for training activities and as reference material that can be accessed via local information centres.
*VSO – Voluntary Service Overseas – a UK based organization that links young volunteers with specific knowledge and experience with development projects.
