About the Book
It is estimated that over 1 million tonnes of farm-made feeds are produced annually in Asia and that about one-third of Asian finfish and crustacean production is achieved partially through their use. It presents and discusses 11 country reviews of the topic, for Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam. Nine technical papers, all directed at farm-made rather than commercial feeds, address feed preparation and feeding strategies for carps and tilapias, for catfish and snakehead and for marine shrimp and prawns; economics; the selection of equipment; feed ingredients; formulation and on-farm management; supplementary feeding in semi-intensive aquaculture; and a regional over-view of aquafeeds in Asia. Emphasis is placed on the importance of farm-made aquafeeds to aquaculture production in the region. A strong plea is made for more attention to the needs of the small-scale farmers who could or do use farm-made feeds.
