The Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation published the Guidebook on Biosecurity and Good Aquaculture Policies and Practices for small-scale farmers of tilapia (Oreochromis sp.) and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss).
The guidebook contains ten steps that identify the main biosecurity risks and good aquaculture practices for small-scale farmers. These guidelines support small-scale tilapia and trout farmers in implementing and maintaining GAP and biosecurity for the economic security and fish health of small-scale farmers and in the face of international opportunities for trade among APEC economies.
The guidebook also includes the result of the risk analysis performed by the APEC economies representatives. This result ranks the steps to improve biosecurity and GAP in small-scale aquaculture farms.
