    On-farm post harvest management of food grains. A manual for extension workers with special reference to Africa

    Agricultural and Food Engineering Training and Resource Materials # 2There is clear evidence that higher quality produce fetches higher prices and simple post-harvest management practices can improve the quality of produce and increase farm income. In this regard, farmers can benefit greatly from advice and training in post-harvest management to maintain quality and add value to produce. This manual provides guidance on post-harvest man

    Assessment of freshwater fish seed resources for sustainable aquaculture (En)

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical PapersFour of the most important resources to aquaculture, outside human and technological resources, are land, water, seed and feed. Efficient use of these resources are necessary to guarantee optimum production from aquaculture. A project Study and Analysis of Seed Production in Small-scale Rural Aquaculture was implemented through a desk study and expert workshop (held in Wuxi, China from 23-26 March 2

  • Hatchery culture of bivalves. A practical manual (Arabic version) (Ar)

    Hatchery culture of bivalves. A practical manual (Arabic version) (Ar)

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical PapersThis manual is a synthesis of current methodologies pertinent to the intensive hatchery culture of bivalve molluscs. It encompasses both the similarities and differences in approach in rearing clams, oysters and scallops in different climatic zones. All aspects of the culture process are described, together with basic considerations in choosing a site for hatchery development and in the design of a

    Improving Penaeus monodon hatchery practices. Manual based on experiences in India (En)

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical PapersShrimp aquaculture is an important and valuable production sector that has been growing rapidly over the past two decades. Success is largely based on the quality of postlarvae, particularly their health condition, thus making hatchery production of quality postlarvae crucial to the sector's sustainability. This document reviews the current status of the Penaeus monodon shrimp hatchery industry in I

  • Installation and operation of a modular bivalve hatchery (En)

    Installation and operation of a modular bivalve hatchery (En)

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical PapersLimiting factors such as minimal capital investment, lack of technical support or expertise and available physical space may put severe restrictions on setting up a hatchery. Not all investors have the means or the will to take the risk to support a large commercial aquaculture operation without substantial proof of its production capacity. For these reasons, the setup of an inexpensive modular hatc

  • Manual on hatchery production of seabass and gilthead seabream. Volume 2 (English)

    Manual on hatchery production of seabass and gilthead seabream. Volume 2 (English)

    Seabass and gilthead seabream are the two marine fish species that have characterized the development of marine aquaculture in the Mediterranean basin in the last three decades. The substantial increase in production levels of these two species that used to be high-values ones and now are considerably cheaper was made possible by the progressive improvement in the technologies for fry production in hatcheries.As a result, more than 100
