Farm-made Aquafeeds

Albert G.J. Tacon (Editor) Michael B. New (Editor) Imre Csavas (Editor)
Synopsis It is estimated that over 1 million tonnes of farm-made feeds are produced annually in Asia and that about one-third of Asian finfish and crustacean production is achieved partially through their use. This book is the proceedings of a meeting held in Bangkok in December 1992 on the use of farm-made feeds in Asia. It presents and discusses 11 country reviews of the topic, for Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet'Nam. Nine technical papers, all directed at farm-made rather than commercial feeds, address feed preparation and feeding strategies for carps and tilapias, for catfish and snakehead and for marine shrimp and prawns; economics; the selection of equipment; feed ingredients; formulation and on-farm management; supplementary feeding in semi-intensive aquaculture; and a regional overview of aquafeeds in Asia. Emphasis is placed on the importance of farm-made aquafeeds to aquaculture production in the region. The publication also includes the official report of the meeting, with recommendations aimed primarily at those concerned with research and development on aquafeeds and organizations that fund such work. A strong plea is made for more attention to the needs of the small-scale farmers who could or do use farm-made feeds.
