The course will cover BAP standards for shrimp hatcheries and for select types of farm culture methods, including land-based ponds and fresh and brackish water cage culture. All species, such as shrimp, tilapia and Pangasius, will be covered. Salmon and other marine cage-cultured species and mussels will not be covered.
The course will be taught by Jeff Peterson, BAP director of quality control; Ken Corpron, BAP Asia-Pacific region coordinator; and Murali Krishna Bujji, BAP trainer.
The venue will be determined at a later date.
