7th Regional Grouper Hatchery Production Training Course, 25 September - 15 October - Situbondo, Indonesia
Applications are invited for participation in the 7th Regional Grouper Hatchery Production Training Course, which will be held at the Brackishwater Aquaculture Development Center in Situbondo, Indonesia from 25 September to 15 October.
Grouper culture has led to a significant contribution to fish production and rural economy in coastal communities in Asia and also played an important role in conservation of the fragile coral reef fishes which are increasingly being threatened with overfishing and habitat destruction. However, one of the major constraints to furthering grouper culture is seed supply. Realising the need to produce commercial quantities of grouper seed, the Network of Aquaculture Centres in Asia-Pacific (NACA), in collaboration with its collaborating centres in the region, has offered a training course on grouper hatchery production six times. Drawing expertise throughout the region and supported by experienced field experts in our collaborating centres, this highly hands-on training course aims to provide participants with a favorable learning environment to update their knowledge and enhance their skills in grouper seed production and hatchery management.
