Information request for FAO review
Dr Albert G.J. Tacon and Dr. Mohammad R. Hasan, FAO Fishery Resources Officer (Aquaculture) seek help in collecting information for a thematic review on "Assessment of demand and supply of aquaculture feed ingredients to meet the future aquaculture production".
The paper is to be presented for open discussion at the Global Conference on Aquaculture 2010 `Farming the Waters for People and Food' to be held June 9-12, 2010 in Bangkok, Thailand.
The thematic review should address the following:
Review of the current dietary feeding practices employed for the production of the major cultivated finfish and crustacean species on a regional and global basis - historical to present;
Review of the major feed ingredient sources currently employed within aquafeeds for the major cultivated finfish and crustacean species on a regional and global basis;
Overview of the total production and market availability of the major feed ingredient sources on a regional and global basis - historical to present;
Overview of the current uses of available major feed ingredient sources on a regional and global basis (includes aquaculture, agriculture, humans,
biofuels) - historical to present;
Review of the major constraints to feed ingredient availability and use by the aquaculture sector on a regional and global basis; and
Recommended approaches to feed ingredient selection and usage within dietary feeding regimes for the major cultivated finfish and crustacean species.
Dr Tacon asks you to support this project by supplying him with relevant information, including publications and presentations, that you think may be of use for helping this review to be compiled in a timely manner.
In particular, he would be grateful if you would complete the attached questionnaire for your country and target species you are working with.
