Summary/Recommendations/Objectives:

The heavy dependence of Southeast Asian countries on fishery products for

their principle source of animal protein, and the need to increase the supply

of such foods to feed rapidly rising populations has given a substantial irnpetus

to aquaculture development in the area. Effective and timely exchange of

aquaculture information among these countries is important to the rapid progress

of theis method of food production. One means of accomplishing this exchange

is for scientists from one country to visit centers of aquaculture

activity in other Southeast Asian countries.

The Aquaculture Production Project (APP), supported jointly by USAID and

the Republic of the Philippines,· fundea a three-week tour of selected aquaculture

activities in Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, and Taiwan, by two Philippines

fisheries officials and the USAID fisheries advisor in June 1979. The purpose

of this tour was to confer with aquaculture specialists in these countries and

 

observe research and commercial aquaculture facilities.

The objective of this report is to make available the information they obtained

on aquaculture practices and the status of related research and development

in these countries.
