PREDOMINANT PRODUCTION SYSTEM
hatchery - closed cycle
Encourage all feed companies to publicly disclose source fisheries (for example, via annual reports or sustainability reports, regularly updated websites, or via initiatives such as the Ocean Disclosure Project) - and where necessary, initiate Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs).
Apply and enforce MARD’s Decree 55/2017/NĐ-CP on the traceability of products to eliminate the use of prohibited veterinary substances.
Approve the Circular (currently unnumbered) to guide implementation of Environment Protection Law No. 55/2014/QH13.
Encourage the adoption of zonal management approaches and VietGAP standards into provincial master plans for pangasius production.
Encourage the DAH under MARD to establish a regional disease surveillance, prevention, and control system focused on coordinated control activities and zonal approaches to disease management. Encourage the DAH to continue with plans to publish a list of disease-free zones and disease zones on their website.
Encourage MARD to apply Circular 14/2016/TT-BNNPTNT, which requires pangasius farms to be managed under a zonal approach and under which zones should be registered with the DAH of DARD to be certified disease-free.
In FishSource, information on aquaculture management is displayed at the highest resolution unit for which data is available. Ideally, information would simply be structured around an aquaculture management area (AMA) – the primary unit within which aquaculture management practices should be coordinated across a group of farms to mitigate against cumulative impacts and shared risks. Although AMAs are sometimes recognized in industry strategy and regulatory documents, they are not yet established across all aquaculture industries; so, we typically display information at the province/state level.
