ASIA - The Network of Aquaculture Centres in Asia Pacific (NACA) in collaboration with the Main Centre for Mariculture Development, Lampung, Indonesia, has opened up the 7th Regional Grouper Hatchery Production Training Course for applications.

The course is scheduled from 11 to 31 October 2009 and will be conducted in the Main Centre for Mariculture Development, Lampung, Indonesia.

The training course only accepts a maximum number of 20 participants and it is operated on a first-come-first-served basis.

This course is designed to provide hands-on training on all aspects of seed production for grouper.

Participants will learn to select, maintain, and handle broodstock, induce fish to spawn, incubate eggs, prepare live feed and develop feeding regimes for newly hatched larvae, and practice nursing prior to seed harvesting, packaging and transportation.

Participants will also be presented with a theoretical background on biology, reproductive physiology, nutrition and health management.

Field visits will showcase production technology and status of small and medium-scale grouper hatcheries, nurseries, grow-out farms, live food suppliers, traders and live seafood exporters in Indonesia. Some government research and extension institutes will also be visited.
