A one-week training course in live feed production and hatchery rearing of fry was given to the hatchery staff of the different Coastal Fisheries Research and Development Centres around Thailand.

A training course on methods used undertaken for monitoring environmental impacts of aquaculture and ways to reduce impact of aquaculture. This was to help the Coastal Fisheries Research and Development Center in Krabi with planning of coastal aquaculture in the Krabi region. Aquaculture has impacts on the environment and these should be monitored to ensure that the production is within the carrying capacity of the environment.

The environmental training course was given over one week with 2 hours a day of lectures to the water quality and coastal development staff of the Centre. The lectures included a detailed analysis of aquaculture impact on the seabed, i n the water column in terms of physical, biological and chemical impacts. The presentations were made to the Coastal Fisheries, aquaculture and water quality sections of the Krabi Institute.

The course covered:

  • Day 1. Impacts of aquaculture on the environment
  • Day 2. Environmental survey methodology
  • Day 3. Survey equipment and production survey
  • Day 4. Predictive modelling of impact
  • Day 5. Methods to mitigate aquaculture impact
