SPAIN - The unique issues related to tilapia farming in Asia will be addressed in standards for certifying tilapia aquaculture products.

The standards are under revision in response to feedback about fish farming in Asia received at the first Tilapia Aquaculture Dialogue meeting, said the WWF.

The meeting, held in Kuala Lumpur in August after the Tilapia 2007 conference, follows a series of tilapia dialogue meetings held in the United States over the past two years. They have have focused more on tilapia farming in the Americas than Asia.

The standards are expected to be posted for public review by the end of this year.
