Fishery and Aquaculture

The category fishery and aquaculture covers the wild capture and farming of aquatic organisms including fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants. This category includes practices and technologies on sweet and saltwater fish species, in particular on stock management, fishing techniques and its limitations, and fishing equipment.

Technologies and practices on aquaculture species, e.g. different fish species, shrimp/prawns, and seaweed, range from pond construction to breeding, feeding, and fish health control as well as pond management, and harvesting. For both fishery and aquaculture, there are technologies on post-harvesting methods (e.g. storage, processing, and marketing).

It also includes information on the construction and management of aquaponics, a bio-integrated system that links recirculating aquaculture with hydroponic vegetable, flower, and/or herb production.

In addition, you can find practices and organizational techniques in the field of fishery and aquaculture for social and economic community use.

The fishery and aquaculture category covers the Sustainable Development Goals of no poverty, zero hunger, responsible consumption and production as well as life below water.
