- Background / Highlights of Activity
In the Asian and Pacific region, there is an increasing demand among consumers for high-quality, eco-friendly, and safe aquaculture products. Hence, it has become more important than ever to adopt innovative technologies and management schemes that will ensure the preservation of the aquaculture environments, and which will guarantee food safety or the protection of the aquaculture products from any form of hazard or contamination. Meeting safety requirements (e.g. Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) in all stages of the production and handling process has now become an uncompromising condition in most countries. However, complying with these rigid safety requirements has been difficult for small-scale farmers, who have been producing mostly unqualified and contaminated aquaculture commodities, owing to their little knowledge about medication and pond management as well as some structural constraints.
This international workshop served as a venue for the sharing of knowledge and experiences on improved aquaculture technologies and management system to address the need for eco-friendly production processes and food safety concerns. It covered major issues, recent technological advancements, and more detailed topics such as monitoring for the presence of pathogenic bacteria, chemical contaminants, and drug residues in aquaculture products, all toward addressing the long-term viability and sustainability of aquaculture development, particularly in respect to commercial aquaculture by small-scale fish farmers. Case studies on institutional resources and critical factors to facilitate small-scale farmers’ adoption of technologies and management schemes were also exchanged.
A field observation tour of aquaculture production areas in northern Bali provided the participants an opportunity to get an insight into the aquaculture industry of the island.
During the two-day paper presentations and discussions, 14 speakers representing 8 countries in Asia (comprised of 6 resource papers, and 8 country papers) shared and exchanged information, knowledge and experiences on such key issues as: environmental and social concerns in production; technologies to improve the quality and safety of aquaculture food that is placed in the market; and marketing, institutional support, government policies, and other critical factors for the development of small-scale aquaculture farming in Asia.
