New technical paper: Improving the performance of tilapia farming under climate variation: perspective from bioeconomic modelling



A bioeconomic model has been developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) based on experiences in China to show how optimal

arrangements of farming operations can improve the technical and economic performance of tilapia pond aquaculture. This paper presents the methodology and results of the model. The results reveal the mechanisms and extent by which aquaculture performance can be improved through optimal farming arrangements.
