LIBFISH Technical Briefing Notes (TBN) are intended as preliminary communications about ongoing or recently completed work undertaken through the various Project components. This seventeenth number in the series comprises a proposal for construction and operation of a small-scale integrated solar salt/Artemia production unit. The unit is intended for demonstration and experimental purposes, to provide training and research opportunities for the technical staff of the Secretariat of Marine Wealth, the MBRC. and the Aquaculture Institute (Khoms), Pilot operations could be carried out to test possibilities for low-cost community units for the production of good quality solar salt (for fish preservation and sale) and Artemia cysts for the aquaculture sector. The proposal has been prepared jointly by Mr. F. Medina Pizzali (FAO Fish Technology Advisor), Dr. F. Vallet (FAO Senior Aquaculture Advisor) and M. Magsoudi (MBRC Research Officer).
TBN No. 17 documents further contributions towards the fulfillment of Project terms of reference related to fish technology and aquaculture in Libya. The Project's F/Tech group counts amongst its activities practical work and related training for national personnel on improved fish preservation techniques. The Aqua group is concerned, amongst other things, with: assessment of national aquaculture potential and existing capacity and requirements, site visits and evaluation; and training activities in a wide array of aquaculture techniques including fry and feed trials, and operation of experimental feed, hatchery, and supporting laboratory and production-related facilities.
