  “I made the right choice in coming to AQD,” said Ms. Claudia Ehlers Kerber of Brazil upon completing the International training on marine fish hatchery which ran from May 26 to July 1. “This is because of the knowledge imparted unselfishly by AQD mentors and the skills we gained.” Ms. Kerber had 14 co-trainees from Indonesia, Myanmar, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Sudan, Thailand, Sultanate of Oman, the Federated States of Micronesia, and the Philippines.” Lectures and practicals covered a diverse selection of topics such as sustainable aquaculture, fish biology, natural food production, hatchery design & management, nutrition &  feeds, water quality monitoring, health management, economics, post-harvest, and marketing. The participants also made field trips.


The participants and AQD staff during the closing ceremonyFor the International training on crab hatchery and grow-out, six participants coming from the Sultanate of Oman,  Singapore and the Philippines completed AQD’s course held April 14–May 5. AQD resource persons lectured on seed production, nursery & grow-out, and industry status; and gave practical demonstrations on microalgae & Artemia culture as well as larval rearing and feeding. AQD Deputy Chief Dr. Azuma, in his message to participants, said that the course was conducted not only to instruct “how to produce good quality crab seed and how to grow healthy and high-value crabs” but also because there is a “need to disseminate new technology to ensure the sustainability of crab farming through environment-friendly methods.”
