Installation and operation of a modular bivalve hatchery.
FAO Fisheries Technical Paper. No. 492. Rome, FAO. 2007. 173p.
Contains a CD-ROM.
Limiting 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 hatchery may be a simpler option to the start-up of a large
commercial operation, or maybe sufficient to the needs of a smaller operation.
