Inquiries to the ASEAN/UNDP/FAO Regional Small-Scale Coastal Fisheries Development Project on management techniques, hatchery operations, feeds, diseases and related aspects of shrimp farming has been increasing. Publications of the Project retained in the library have become out of print due to high demand within and outside the region. Reproduction of pieces of information concerning shrimp farming becomes a tedious and repetitious work for a one-man library. In view of this situation, it was thought that available information from different sources compiled into a single document would be of great benefit to shrimp farmers, the research workers, students and administrators in government in their pursuit or technical information for shrimp farming development. The preparation of this document is part of the information dissemination of the Project to provide the ASEAN countries with essential technical information. This material is not complete in itself, but relevant technical information at the time of preparation were used.
