Regional Training on the aquaculture production systems including cage culture

02-05 October 2012, Izmir, Turkey

Inland fisheries and aquaculture in the Central Asian (CA) countries, i.e. Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and  Uzbekistan has dramatically decreased since the independence of these countries from the former Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics in the early 1990s. Limited management of the resources, lack of policies, limited capital investments, outdated technical know-how and low institutional capacity are main reasons why the regional inland fisheries and aquaculture production has not gained any momentum since 1990s despite the large potential available in these countries. These negative factors in the CA countries decreased the total aquaculture based production up to 9.000 mt and its value up to 5 million USD. Similarly total consumption of fish and fish products decreased up to 0.3-4.7 kg per capita  according to FAO 2007 and 2010 statistics.
