Better Management Practices

Better management practices (BMPs) are defined as the management of activities to increase resource utilisation efficiency, thereby increasing farm productivity and reducing unit production cost. Many BMPs also reduce the environmental impact of aquaculture by reducing resource consumption and wastage. BMPs are measures that can be implemented by farmers directly to improve their economic returns, without need for third party market or certification systems but follow the standards or guidelines to improve their farm management practices.

By their nature, BMPs refer to a wide range of interventions that can be made to improve or optimise performance in financial, social, animal health, environmental and other areas or sub-categories.
