Da Nang city: Developing “Green aquaculture” model (18-12-2018)
On the November 13th, the Center for Fishery – Agriculture – Forestry Extension of Da Nang city organized a workshop on “Green bio-aquaculture model” with the participation of freshwater fish farmers in communes of Hoa Phong and Hoa Khuong (Hoa Vang district).
An environmentally friendly aquaculture model was piloted for 10 households in Hoa Phong and Hoa Khuong communes on a total area of 16,000 m2 with 4 species raised included 80% of red tilapia, 5% of barb, 5% of carp and 10% of basa fish. The total cost of VND 100 million was supported by the Center.
After 5 months of implementation, the model mentioned above was highly appreciated by the farmers at the workshop. Traditionally, the rate of loss was about 40%. Nowadays, thanks to the use of the biosafety method, the risk of disease was reduced as farmers did not use the antibiotics, thus clean and safe products would be provided for consumers.
Mr. Dang Van Hong, Director of the for Fishery – Agriculture – Forestry Extension of Da Nang city assessed, through monitoring, the survival rate of fish when applying the model reached 65-75%, productivity got from 8-10 tons / ha , bringing profit from VND 70-90 million / ha.
