Description: 

This project is proposed to the Danish government for funding and scheduled to be implemented from April 2012 to April 2015.  The main objective of the project is to contribute to the sustainable development of coastal aquaculture in Central Vietnam under climate change condition through better use of available nutrition resources.
The project will be managed by ARSINC as the main responsible institution in collaboration with DTU Aqua, Denmark and other institutes and universities in Vietnam in the field of research.
Expected outputs of the project are: (i) Reports on Central coastal aquaculture sector  including analyses of culture system and practices, farmer’s livelihood and their vulnerability to climate change associated incidents as well as  possible ‘aquaculture based’ adaptation measures of  livelihoods.  (ii) Cost-effective grow-out pellet feeds for a selected commercial carnivorous fish species developed as a case study to replace the use of trash fish- traditional feed and in response to global limitation of fish meal and fish oil. (iii) Farming techniques of non-feed based species and integrated multi-trophic species developed, demonstrated and promoted. 01 PhD and 03 MSc students educated through the project’s research activities as part of research capacity building for Vietnamese partners. (iv) Adapting measures and techniques for coastal aquaculture farmers disseminated including policy recommendation. 
The main results obtained in the project will be jointly published in international peer-reviewed journals by the involved partners. It is anticipated that the project will lead to a minimum of 3 publications. The results will also be presented in national and international scientific conferences. Reports, policy recommendations, and technical guidelines will be disseminated through the Vietnam’s administrative system, target stakeholder and project website.
 
The overall objective of the present project is to contribute to the sustainable development of coastal aquaculture in Central Vietnam under climate change condition through better use of the nutrition resources.
Work package 1, the report on analysis of current aquaculture systems in Central coast region are completed, which is useful input for proposed adaptive culture techniques and policy recommendation.
 

 

Output: 

Midterm report 2016:
The project has generally made a reasonable progress in all four main work packages toward achievement of its objectives.
Work package 1- the report on analysis of current aquaculture systems in Central coast region are completed.
In Work Package 2, the costeffective pellet feed for pompano was developed and tested.
For Work Package 3, all experiments/demonstration on nursery of hard shell clam Meretrix lyrata in earthen pond were completed by the end of 2014. The experiment on improving culture techniques for selected commercial macro algae species, Kappaphycus alverezii was finished.
Experiments on integrated aquaculture models were also completed. Three MSc students of the project were graduated by the end of 2015. The PhD study is on appropriate progress and plan to submit his thesis on July.
In Work Package 4-Communication and Dissemination, all training courses, study tours and workshop were organized for local farmers and extension workers on possible aquaculture models adapted to impacts of climate change.
