Technology transfer of aquaculture technologies: Framework and strategies
MetadataShow full item record
All over the world, aquaculture has been the fastest growing food production system for almost two decades now. Aquaculture provides 43% of the fish consumed worldwide (FAO 2006). The growing dependence on aquaculture to fill the increasing demand for fish is due to dwindling catch from the wild. Many developing countries, especially in Southeast Asia, look upon aquaculture to help address food and livelihood problems. To promote the development of aquaculture, governments have invested on aquaculture research and development (R&D), provided tax incentives to companies that are engaged in aquaculture and related enterprises, and formulated policies in support of aquaculture and aquaculture-related industries.
