Enhancement to improve the performance of inland capture fisheries beyond a level sustainable by natural processes may entail stocking with seed originating from aquaculture installations or the wild, or from modification of the fishery habitat. In Asia, the most typical form of stocking are culture-based fisheries which use seed from...
Stocking through formal stocking programmes is generally recognized as an important tool to compensate for losses in fish productivity and fish species diversity. If the conditions are conducive and the enhancement measures well-designed, such programmes are effective in increasing fisheries yields for food or income. In practice, many enhancements have...
Inland capture fisheries provide an important source of food and livelihoods for many people in rural areas. In 2008, inland capture fisheries provided 10.2 million tonnes of fish worldwide (FAO, 2010), which was largely used for direct human consumption. Asia has overwhelmingly contributed to the world’s inland capture fisheries production with a reported total production of 6.8 million tonnes in...
Inland fisheries contribute only about ten percent to global fish production. Asia is the leading producer of inland fish, accounting for over 80 percent of the total production. Until recently, the inland fisheries sector had taken back stage in fisheries development plans, particularly so, given the emphasis being placed on aquaculture development throughout the world, including Asia. This report evaluates...
