LIBFISH Technical Briefing Notes (TBN) are intended as preliminary communications about ongoing or recently completed work undertaken through the various Project components. This nineteenth number in the series reviews an investigation carried out by the Project's Aquaculture (Aqua) Working Group into shrimp mortality problems at the Ain Kaam Fish Farm, initiated at the request of officials of the Aquaculture Institute in Khoms. Mr. F. Pizzali, FAO Fish Technology Advisor, helped with library reference work to determine possible causes of the disease outbreak. Drs. Seif Eddin A.M. Jameel and Osheik A. Ali of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, El Fatah University, Tripoli, kindly provided valuable assistance with microbiological and histopathological examinations. Mr. A. Fituri (MBRC) and Dr. F. Vallet, FAO Senior Aquaculture Advisor, prepared this record of the investigation.
TBN No. 19 documents further contributions towards the fulfilment of Project terms of reference related to aquaculture in Libya. The Aqua group is concerned, amongst other things, with: assessment of national aquaculture potential and existing capacity and requirements; site visits and evaluation; training activities in a wide array of aquaculture techniques including fry and feed trials, operation of experimental feed, hatcheries, and supporting laboratory and production-related facilities; and the preparation of advisory reports to the Secretariat of Marine Wealth.
