Description of the Trip
According to the U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organisation, the share of fish stocks within biologically sustainable levels decreased from 90% in 1974 to 68.6% in 2013. The remaining 31.4% of fish stocks are estimated to be at a biologically unsustainable level.
So are we overfishing to an extent that fishes are not given enough time to grow and reproduce? Is aquaculture a solution to declining fish stock? Come find out during the fish farm visit.
With the permission of WWF-Malaysia, Marine SIG will be bringing only 20 members to one of the fish farms that participates in WWF-Malaysia’s Aquaculture Improvement Projects (AIP). This project is basically a step wise approach in improving aquaculture practices to be more environmentally friendly while ensuring that the business continue to thrives. In this tour, we will learn more about:
- What is environmentally friendly aquaculture or Responsible Aquaculture practices.
- The difference between a conventional (typical fish farm in Malaysia) and an AIP farm.
- Why the need for farms in Malaysia to change towards responsible aquaculture practices. You may bring a cooler box if you would like to buy some groupers or pompanos after the tour in the farm.
