Freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii farming in Pacific Island countries: Hatchery Operation
The farming of freshwater prawn is expanding in Fiji and in the Pacific. The grow-out sector of the industry depends entirely on hatchery-produced postlarvae, and the primary problem facing this ‘infant’ industry is the unavailability of postlarvae. Due to expansion in production and the trend towards intensification of prawn farming, there will be a need for development of more hatcheries for production of postlarvae to meet the demands in the Pacific Island countries...Read More.  
Mud crab aquaculture - A practical manual
There are four species of mud crab, Scylla serrata, S. tranquebarica, S. paramamosain and S. olivacea that are the focus of both commercial fisheries and aquaculture production throughout their distribution. They are among the most valuable crab species in the world, with the bulk of their commercial production sent live to market. This is the first FAO aquaculture manual on this genus, covering everything from its basic biology and aquaculture production, through to stock packaging and being ready to go to marke
