Department: Technical Cooperation
Project Name: Aquaculture Project (Fiji)
Project Description: Fiji has potential for aquaculture development given the presence of excellent supporting factors such as suitable climate, water quality and land resources. Both the tourism industry and fisheries sector are important to the country’s economy. In addition, the current positive state of the market represents a key to future growth. This project is an aid production project which assists the Ministry of Fisheries in Fiji to repair aquaculture related facilities and to build human capacity in order to produce larvae of seawater shrimp at the Caboni Multi-hatchery Station (CMH). The Ministry of Fisheries will provide the larvae to dozens of households in the country for breeding for free. In addition, in response to the policy considerations of the Ministry of Fisheries, the project assists to breed 200 adult milkfish and 50 adult groupers as future brood stock. The main contents of the project are: 1. Training and training of 4 technicians in the center; 2. Improving the breeding of soft and hard facilities in the center, including 11 outdoor earthen ponds and 8 cement pools; 3. Producing 3 million South American white shrimp seedlings; 4. Assist in the development of the future development of the 200 pieces milkfish, and 50 pieces of grouper fish in the marine aquaculture industry.
