CGPM presents “Black Sea rombot: A complete production manual” – In the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, aquaculture is considered essential to ensure food security and reduce dependence on wild fish. The General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) has identified sustainability as a priority in its strategy for sustainable fisheries and aquaculture in the region. To promote this sustainability, it has published the “Black Sea turbot: A complete production manual,” which provides detailed information on the development of turbot aquaculture.
The manual consists of five parts covering various aspects of turbot production. The first part introduces the aquaculture sector and the optimal environmental conditions for production. The second part describes the production of live food for turbot larvae, such as microalgae, rotifers, and Artemia. The third part provides guidelines for broodstock management, while the fourth part focuses on improving larval and juvenile rearing. Finally, the last part of the manual presents the latest biotechnological applications, such as cryopreservation, triploidy, and all-female farming.
This manual is an important tool for industry operators who wish to implement sustainable practices in turbot aquaculture. The GFCM is committed to supporting the exchange of knowledge and technologies to promote responsible and productive aquaculture production in the Mediterranean and Black Sea regions.
