Technical Cooperation

Project Name: Aquaculture Project (Palau)
Project Description: Palau is an island country. To meet the requirements of Palau government in its food security policy in expanding aquaculture scale for more food fish production so as to reducing capture fisheries for sustainable fishery resource management, this project is to assist Palau National Aquaculture Center (PNAC) of Bureau of Marine Resources (BMR) to increase rabbitfish fingerling production; to develop milkfish broodstock for artificial propagation; to study on the aquaculture of local black tiger shrimp, and to conduct capacity building of cooperation counterparts, in order to supply sufficient rabbitfish fingerling and black tiger shrimp fry for aquaculture production, and through extension efforts to improve technical skills and production efficiency of aquaculture farmers to enhance overall aquaculture technology as well as production.
The main contents of this project include: (1) increase of fingerling production for aquaculture extension: production of 270,000 rabbitfish fingerlings, and 120,000 black tiger shrimp fry if after survey the broodstock shrimp source can be identified and ensured; (2) the development of 25 milkfish broodstock fish as the basis for future artificial propagation to produce milkfish fingerlings; (3) capacity building to enhance the technical capacity of Palau National Aquaculture Center of Bureau of Marine Resources in broodstock development and research on farming new species; (4) extension work to improve aquaculture farmers’ technical skills and production efficiency.

Implementation Start Date: 2021/1/1
Implementation End Date: 2025/12/31
Project Objectives: The objectives of this project are:
1. Increase of fingerling production
(1) Rabbitfish: produce 40,000 fingerlings in 1st year; 50,000 in 2nd year; 60,000 in the 3rd, 4th, 5th year, with a total 270,000 fingerlings in 5 years.
(2) Black tiger shrimp fry: In 1st year, conduct survey and research on broodstock source, seasonality and broodstock maturation. If the broodstock source can be identify and ensured, artificial propagation trials will be carried out to produce shrimp fry. 30,000 fry will be produced in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th year, with a total 120,000 fry.
2. Development of milkfish broodstock
Collect and develop 25 broodstock fish as the basis for
artificial propagation.
3. Enhancement of BMR technical capacity
(1) Capacity building for two BMR technical staff or
counterparts on broodstock development management, live
food culture, artificial propagation, fingerling nursery
management, growout management, nutrition requirement,
disease control and aquaculture extension skills.
(2) Development of BMR’s own milkfish broodstock; prepare technical manuals on broodstock fish management, fingerling and shrimp fry production, grow-out production management.
4. Aquaculture extension
(1) Hold 10 aquaculture training workshops to train farmer and improve farmer’s aquaculture skill on basic aquaculture concept and good working manner, feeding management, water quality management, growth sampling, nutrition requirement, disease prevention and control and harvest management.
(2) Extend three (3) farmer per year, with a total of 15 farmers in 5 years.
Executing Agency: 1.Taiwan Technical Mission in the Republic of Palau
2.Bureau of Marine Resources (Republic of Palau)
Current Progress: To the end of March 2021, the following activities have been completed:
1. Increase of fingerling production
(1) Rabbitfish: produce 15,500 fingerlings.
(2) Black tiger shrimp fry: collected 1 male tiger shrimp.
2. Development of milkfish broodstock
Collect 32 broodstock fish as the basis for artificial propagation.
3. Enhancement of BMR technical capacity
Capacity building for one BMR technical staff counterparts on broodstock development management.
4. Aquaculture extension
Assisted 1 farmer to raise rabbit fish.
Project Performance: 1.Increased rabbitfish production by 100% at the end of the project;
2.Establish propagation technology on black tiger shrimp; and broodstock of milkfish.
