Mola (Amblypharyngodon mola) aquaculture in Bangladesh: Status and future needs

Mola (Amblypharyngodon mola) is one small indigenous fish species (SIS) that has long been identified as an excellent candidate for aquaculture because of its excellent nutritional value. Several organizations in the country have undertaken research and development into mola, including the Bangladesh Fisheries Research Institute (BFRI) and the Department of Fisheries (DOF) as well as several universities and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).

Guide to improving live fish transportation with special attention to the COVID-19 pandemic in Bangladesh and other tropical developing countries

Other objectives include (i) providing safer methods for handling and transportation, (ii) improving animal welfare, (iii) reducing road safety hazards, and (iv) detailing methods to reduce the cost of live fish transportation. However, some farmers and traders use inappropriate transportation practices, which have led to health hazards during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Effect of dietary protein to energy ratio, stocking density and feeding level on performance of Nile tilapia in pond aquaculture

There is growing interest to understand the dietary P:E requirements for the supplemental feed used in tilapia pond culture where natural food contributes to production. In an on-farm trial, we tested the effect of lowering dietary P:E ratio on fish performance, pond nutrient utilization and economic benefit under two stocking densities and feeding levels.
