  12. 12. Problems in cage culture <ul><li>High mortality rates of pangasids and snakeheads during summer months, particularly from March-May when the water temperature is high and the water flow is reduced; </li></ul><ul><li>Overcrowding of fish results in a large amount of waste being discharged, causing deterioration of water quality; </li></ul><ul><li>The seed used for cage culture of both snakeheads and Pangasids are collected from the wild and may be having a significant impact on wild stock; </li></ul><ul><li>Both snakeheads and Pangasids culture, the sharp decline of wild seed had led to a shortage of seed for stocking, while hatchery-produced seed have not been available; </li></ul><ul><li>Snakeheads do not easily accept pellet feed. There is a heavy reliance on catching or buying low value fish/trash fish for feed. This could be better utilised for human consumption. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Freshwater pond culture </li></ul><ul><li>Pond culture is of recent origin, some time around the 1960s </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Intensive fish culture system ( P. hypophthalmus & Hybrid clariid catfish) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Extensive/semi-intensive culture system (Indigenous species, Tilapia, Exotic Carp species) </li></ul></ul>Extensive/semi-intensive system, 25% Intensive system, 75% Fish production produced by pond culture systems
  14. 14. Intensive pond culture X Species Stocking density Head/m 2 Production (tons/ha) Crop/Year P. hypophthalmus 8 – 30 (avg. 10) 5-200 (Avg. 67) 1 Hybrid clariid catfish 10 – 150 (avg. 50) 8-300 (Avg. 60) 2-4
  15. 15. Extensive/semi-intensive pond culture To provide fish for family consumption <ul><li>The promotion of family fish pond culture was started in 1986, through the UNICEF’s Family Food Program </li></ul><ul><li>The practice has been promoted in areas away from wild fish production sites (by Projects, NGOs and IOs) </li></ul><ul><li>From 1990s, many NGOs/IOs and projects such as: PADEK, SAO, AIT-AARM, APHEDA, MRC, UNDP/FAO to promote small-scale aquaculture at different provinces in Cambodia </li></ul><ul><li>Recently: JICA & DFID/DANIDA project </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>fish are grown in pond of 80-500m2 </li></ul><ul><li>main species: - Pangasius spp, Silver barb </li></ul><ul><li> - Carps and Tilapia </li></ul><ul><li>Feeding: farm wastes products such as Rice bran, duckweed, termites, morning glory & rice-wine waste </li></ul><ul><li>Production: 25-60kg/100m2 (8 months) </li></ul><ul><li>Rice fish culture (RF) </li></ul><ul><li>Recently been introduced into Cambodia </li></ul><ul><li>RF has been promoted since it may provide a number of benefits such as: </li></ul><ul><li>- increase area available for fish production; </li></ul><ul><li>- fish may eat some insects that are harmful to rice plant; </li></ul><ul><li>- waste from fish may be useful fertilizer for rice plant; </li></ul><ul><li>- production of both fish and rice increased. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Inland Aquaculture Production (tons): 1984-2005 <ul><li>Increased from 1610 tons in 1984 to 26, 000 tons in 2005, representing a 11.9 times increase or a growth of 16.3% per year. </li></ul><ul><li>it represented 8.3% of total inland fisheries production in 2005 </li></ul><ul><li>AQ has expanded, diversified and intensified </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>Problems in pond culture </li></ul><ul><li>Seasonal variation in seed supply; </li></ul><ul><li>Unavailable of hatchery-produced seed of high value cultured species; </li></ul><ul><li>Poor knowledge of farmers about feeds and feeding technology; </li></ul><ul><li>Commercial feeds are expensive; </li></ul><ul><li>Farmers have limited capacity for pond investment. </li></ul>
