Projections of climate change effects on Lake Tanganyika (CLEAT)

Lake Tanganyika is an important ecosystem in eastern Africa, which historically has supported one of the world’s most productive freshwater fisheries. However, stocks of important commercial fish have decreased significantly. Scientific evidence sug ... Midterm report 2017: Since 2015 monthly sampling of water quality data has been done along with training of TAFIRI staff and Ph.D. students in the use of field and laboratory equipment. Operating procedures has been documentation. In 2016, a ...

Increasing value of African mango and cashew production

Cashew and mango are high value crops ideal for export and important commodities in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Yet production is severely affected by pests reducing yields and quality. Benin, for example, lost 42% of its mango value to fruit flies in ... Project Completion Report: The results will be presented in relation to project objectives as required by DFC in mail from Bente Ilsøe on behalf of Research á 10. April 2014. Objectives are numbered.

Effects of temperature and hypoxia on aerobic scope in the giant freshwater shrimps (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) and (Penaeus monodon)

Depending on future CO2 emission scenarios, the average surface temperature is projected to increase 1.1-6.4°C by 2100. Tropical species, compared to many temperate species, are expected to be particularly sensitive to elevated temperatures because ... Project Completion Report: In light of the ongoing climate change, the ability to predict future effects on biota has received much attention, where it has been sought to establish a unifying model granting predictive power to characterize an ...

Climate change and estuarine ecosystems

The project will establish a base line for the ecological functioning of two typical Vietnamese estuaries. The base line will comprise a description of the estuarine ecology including primary production, nutrient dynamics, substance transport to and ... We have fullfilled the goals that we agreed upon in 2010 and as we described in the application. Two female Vietnamese students graduated with high marks in 2011.All results from the project were disseminated during a national workshop at ION in Feb ...

O2 requirements of the air-breathing fishes Pangasius hypophthalmus and Channa striatus

The air-breathing fish, Pangasius hypophthalmus and Channa striatus, are two of the most important fish species in the aquaculture of the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. In particular Pangasius aquaculture is in rapid growth and is now a common consumer it ...

Training and Research on physiological constraints in aquaculture in the Mekong

The Mekong Delta (MD) covers approx 12% of Vietnam, but accounts for more than half of the total agricultural production and for more than 60% of its fish production. Aquaculture has become a huge industry of importance both for the domestic market ...
