Temperate broadleaved trees grow in very different ecosystems in the northern and southern hemispheres, but are also found extensively in many tropical and subtropical mountain areas. A wide range of non-wood products are derived from temperate broadleaved trees, and their description is organized in this volume according to the part of the tree from which they are obtained (whole tree, foliage, flowers, etc.). This information is presented in order to raise awareness on, and assist in identifying, opportunities for the management and production of non-wood products from temperate broadleaved trees. The intended audience of this publication ranges from interest groups in the forest, agriculture and rural development sectors to conservation agencies in developed and developing countries.

Farming freshwater prawns. A manual for the culture of the giant river prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii)

FAO Fisheries Technical Paper No. 428
Rome, 2002, 226 pp.
ISBN 92-5-104811-8
ISSN 0429-9345
TR/M/Y4100/E
$50.00


This manual is an up-to-date practical guide to the farming of Macrobrachium rosenbergii. Many of the techniques described are also applicable to the culture of other species of freshwater prawns. The principle target audience is farmers and extension workers but it is also hoped that it will be useful for aquaculture lecturers and students. After a preliminary section on the biology of freshwater prawns, the manual covers site selection for hatcheries, nurseries and grow-out facilities, and the management of the broodstock, hatchery, nursery and grow-out phases of rearing. Harvesting and post-harvest handling are also covered and there are some notes on marketing freshwater prawns. The reference and bibliography section contains a list of relevant reviews, as well as other manuals on general aquaculture themes, such as water and soil management, topography, pond construction and simple economics. The management principles described are illustrated by photographs and drawings. The manual contains annexes on specific topics such as the production of larval feeds, size variation, and stock estimation. The final annex is a glossary that lists not only the terms used in the manual itself but also those which may be found in other documents.

Fish passes. Design, dimensions and monitoring

Rome, 2002, 136 pp.
ISBN 92-5-104894-0
TC/M/Y4454/E
$28.00


(Originally published in German by Deutscher Verband für Wasserwirtschaft und Kulturbau e.V.) Many fish species, like salmon and sturgeon, undertake extended migrations as part of their basic behavior, and other fish and invertebrates also undertake short-term or small-scale migrations at certain phases of their life cycles. Activities such as dam construction for water supply and power generation, channelization for navigation and flood control, land drainage and wetland reclamation for agricultural and urban use all have profound impact on the aquatic ecosystem and thus on natural fish populations. Fish passes are often the only way to make it possible for aquatic fauna to pass obstacles that block their up-river journey. Based on knowledge and experience from mainly Europe and North America, this book describes the various types of fish passes, with special emphasis to “close-to-nature” solutions. It is hoped that this book contributes largely to increase the awareness of the need for unobstructed fish passage and to multiply the number of well-designed and well-dimensioned fish passes around the globe to restore lost migration routes.

These guidelines are intended to help those involved in managing fisheries to understand the range of objectives that an observer programme can meet and how these contribute towards the management of a fishery. The importance of scientific, compliance and information outputs is considered in relation to the requirements for developing and implementing management plans. The guidelines promote the use of observers as agents capable of contributing to many monitoring, sampling and compliance activities required in modern integrated fisheries management. The inputs, requirements and outputs of at-sea fishery observer programmes are presented, focusing on what they are, how they relate to the objectives of a programme and different options on how to develop them. The guidelines conclude with a design and maintenance strategy for an observer programme.

Managing fishing capacity of the world tuna fleet

FAO Fisheries Circular No. 982
Rome, 2003, 80 pp.
ISSN 0429-9329
TR/D/Y4499/E
$15.00


As the number and efficiency of vessel that harvest tuna increases, there is a growing concern on the part of nations and international bodies that it will become increasingly difficult to implement and sustain effective conservation measures for tuna. The tuna fishery bodies must work together, and with FAO to resolve the problem of tuna fishing capacity. Because most stocks of tuna are nearly full exploited or overexploited, and a growing fleet capacity can cause adverse economic disruptions in the international market for tunas, this document is timely and its subject matter is of critical importance.

Trends in oceanic captures and clustering of large marine ecosystems. Two studies based on the FAO capture database

FAO Fisheries Technical Paper No. 435

Species items reported in the FAO capture fisheries production database have been classified as oceanic or living on the continental shelves. A preliminary work on the re-arrangement of FAO capture data into large marine ecosystems’ (LME) borders was prepared in 1999. In the meantime, following a study funded by the World Resource Institute (WRI), oceanic species in the FAO capture database were identified and subdivided into epipelagic and deep-water species. As a consequence, it was decided to revise the species included in the LME project, excluding those categorized as oceanic to obtain two complete separate sets of species items from the FAO capture database. This document contains the LME study, encompassing the re-arrangement of FAO statistics, and the report to WRI on trends of oceanic catches analysed over a 50-year period (1950-1999) and by FAO fishing area.

Le Groupe de travail s'est réuni pour faire le point de la situation du secteur de l'aquaculture en eau douce dans la région de la CECPI, et notamment des problèmes liés à la commercialisation des produits. Le séminaire avait pour but de fournir des informations essentielles et des conseils stratégiques sur la manière de réaliser le potentiel productif du secteur aux i) responsables politiques, administratifs et législatifs; ii) futurs investisseurs; iii) consommateurs et iv) surtout aux producteurs. L'aquaculture européenne est dominée par l'élevage de truites et de carpes (environ 94 pour cent de la production), alors que d'autres espèces prometteuses pour l’élevage n'ont pas été exploitées avec profit. L'industrie européenne de l'aquaculture en eau douce est mue par le produit ou le producteur selon une approche traditionnelle et souffre en particulier d'un manque d'intégration verticale reliant les producteurs aux consommateurs par l'intermédiaire de la chaîne de commercialisation.

Promotion de l'aquaculture commerciale durable en Afrique subsaharienne. Volume 2: Investissement et faisabilité économique

Cette partie du rapport apporte un éclairage particulier sur un des obstacles majeurs au développement de l'aquaculture commerciale dans les pays d'Afrique subsaharienne, et qui est la difficulté des entrepreneurs à accéder aux capitaux. Le problème semble venir, en partie, du manque de garanties, des taux d'intérêts de remboursement d'emprunts trop élevés, de l'idée des banquiers que l'aquaculture est risquée, et du manque de connaissance des éleveurs des modalités d'accès aux institutions financières allouant des prêts. Le problème est aggravé par le manque de connaissance des prêteurs des entreprises aquacoles qui réussissent dans la région. Le présent rapport propose un certain nombre de politiques et stratégies nécessaires pour affronter ces problèmes.
