Community-based aquaculture for poverty alleviation and sustainable livelihoods
MetadataShow full item record
Fish is a staple food for people in many parts of the world, particularly in Asia. It is an increasingly important source of protein, not only for food security but also as it is a fast renewable resource. Asia is the home of aquaculture, a practice which dates back to thousands of years. In the course of its development, the nature of aquaculture has become more intricate, intertwining with other food production sectors under the influence of political, social, economic, technological and cultural factors. With advancement of technology, the involvement of more aquatic species and farming practices has become possible, and more choices can be offered to the consumers. Population growth, economic growth and the development of disposable income and higher purchasing power, and social factors such as traditional fish consumption patterns, will shape future demand for fish and fishery products (Westlund, 1995).
