Risk analysis in aquaculture
As part of its Fisheries and Aquaculture Technical Paper series, FAO`s Fisheries and Aquaculture Department has just published Understanding and applying risk analysis in aquaculture, edited by M.G. Bondad-Reantaso, J.R. Arthur and R.P. Subasinghe. The 304-page publication is organised in two parts. Part 1 contains 12 peer-reviewed technical papers presented during an expert workshop with the same title, held on 7-11 June 2007 in Rayong, Thailand, organised by FAO and the Network of Aquaculture Centres in Asia and the Pacific (NACA). One of the 12 papers, entitled Application of risk analysis to genetic issues in aquaculture, by E. Hallerman, covers genetically modified organisms. Part 2 contains the proceedings of the workshop.
