AIT’s Ram Bhujel authors book on Tilapia Business Management

25 Aug 2014
Pakkamol Dherapongsthada

The 10-chapter book covers a wide range of topics including tilapia
hatchery, fry nursing, grow-out in ponds, grow-out in cages,
polyculture, integrated farming, fish health management and
biosecurity, post-harvest handling, and business models.

“The book has a practical focus, and it describes best practice
production methods, egg management, new technologies, nutrition,
business practices, marketing, equipment maintenance, accounting and
logistics,” Dr. Bhujel says. Dubbed as “aquatic chicken”, the
production of this extremely important source of protein is set to
double within the next ten years. It is expanding beyond traditional
areas of production in Africa and Asia, and AIT has made a substantial
contribution by developing its farming technologies and their
dissemination.

Released in June 2014, the 216-pages hardback can be purchased from
