SRI LANKA - Ten fish farmers, four government officers and one project officer from Sri Lanka completed a ten-day training and study tour on cage-based aquaculture in Thailand from 20-30 May 2009.

According to the Network of Aquaculture Centres Asia-pacific (NACA), the training programme was structured with a couple of class room lectures to provide participants with some background theory on cage aquaculture systems, hands-on sessions to practice feed making and cage construction and field visits to government fisheries centers and cage aquaculture sites.

Despite the very short time for preparation and language constraints, NACA have reported that participants expressed their satisfaction to the programme and felt that the training is useful for cage aquaculture development in Sri Lanka.

NACA says it would like to thank AIDA, the Spanish NGO, for sponsoring the program and the Department of Fisheries, Thailand, for their cooperation and support which made the programme possible.
