Detail description

SSNS Training Course 5:

Marine fish culture techniques

Background

The demand for marine fish has been increasing, while the limitation of marine fish yield has been known worldwide. Currently many countries and territories around the world are focusing on developing marine aquaculture to balance the human demand and the conservation of marine resources. In the other word, the demand for marine fish can only be met fully if marine aquaculture considerably contributes to the volume and stability of global marine fish supplies. The techniques in marine fish culture have been studying and developing to meet this inevitable requirement.
