1 Chumnarn Pongsri, Ph.D. Secretary-General, SEAFDEC Global Conference on Aquatic Animal Health Programmes Panama City, 30 June 2011

2 Introduction (1) Importance of Fisheries/Aquaculture in the Southeast Asian Region Food Security Poverty Alleviation Job Opportunity National Economy

3 Introduction (2) Nature of Fisheries in Southeast Asia Tropical, multi-species, multi-gear Seasonal variation, particularly inland fisheries Mostly by small-scale fishers/farmers Large portions for subsistence and household consumption, and not record in production statistics

4 Introduction (3) Trends of Production in Southeast Asia Marine Capture Inland Capture Aquaculture Source: FAOs presentation at FFP2020 Conference (1000 MT)

5 Introduction (4) Marine Capture Inland Capture Aquaculture Total Fisheries Production of SEA Total SEA production = 27,260,100 MT (19% of Worlds production) Source: FAOs presentation at FFP2020 Conference

6 Introduction (5) Indication from fishery/stock assessment Source: FAOs presentation at FFP2020 Conference

7 Introduction (6) Trends/Issues in Fisheries/Aquaculture Declining capture fishery production due to over- exploitation of resources and habitat degradation Growing concerns on responsible fishing practices to sustain the utilization of resources (UN Fish Stock Agreement, CCRF) Growing demand of fish (esp. for food security) Intensification of aquaculture system to increase the contribution from aquaculture to total fishery production

8 Aquaculture issues/challenges in Southeast Asia (1) Increased use of feeds including low-value fish for aquaculture Organic discharge to the environment Impact from aquaculture on species/genetic diversity Occurrence/wide-spread of aquatic animal diseases Increasing use of chemicals and drugs

9 Emerging requirements for better quality/safety of products, environmental integrity, aquatic animal health and welfare, etc. (increasing certification scheme/requirements, dev. Of FAO Technical Guidelines on Aquaculture Certification) Impacts and mitigation of impacts from climate change to aquaculture Consequences from ASEAN Community Building (targeted by 2015) Aquaculture issues/challenges in Southeast Asia (2)

10 Difficulty for small-scale aquaculture in the region to accommodate the emerging situations and requirements Requirement for capacity building activities, specifically to build capabilities at the farm level to enable fish farmers in undertaking practices that are conform with emerging requirements, including those on aquatic animal health and welfare Aquaculture issues/challenges in Southeast Asia (3)

11 1)Enhancing capacity of fisheries and aquaculture-related authorities on aspects relevant to animal health and welfare, and food safety of aquaculture products with emphasis on promoting appropriate management and improving the aquaculture environment 2)Development of tool kits that are relevant and applicable for small-scale farmers to enhance their capacity to respond to emerging requirements Priority areas for capacity building activities relevant to aquatic animal health and welfare (1)

12 3) Strengthening the capacity of veterinary- related authorities on aquatic animal health and welfare as well as collaboration with fisheries and aquaculture-related agencies on relevant issues 4) Fostering collaboration among countries, organizations, etc. for exchanging information, mobilizing expertise, and enhancing national capacities to satisfy animal health and welfare and food safety requirements of aquaculture products Priority areas for capacity building activities relevant to aquatic animal health and welfare (2)

13 Programs relevant to Fish Disease and Capacity Building (AQD) Development of Fish Disease Inspection Methodologies for Artificially-bred Seeds ( ) Establishment of Disease Surveillance System of Aquatic Animals ( ) Human Capacity Building for Sustainable Aquaculture ( ) Accelerating Awareness and Capacity-Building in Fish Health management in Southeast Asia ( ) Relevant capacity building activities undertaken by SEAFDEC (1)

14 Programs relevant to chemical and drug residues in aquaculture products (MFRD) Chloramphenicol and Nitrofuran Residues in Aquaculture Fish and Fish Products ( ) Chemical and Drug Residues in Fish and Fish Products in Southeast Asia ( ) – for Choramphenicol, Nitrofuran, Malachite Green & Leuco-malachite Green Relevant capacity building activities undertaken by SEAFDEC (2)

15 Relevant capacity building activities undertaken by SEAFDEC (3) Research & Development Technology Verification Information Package & Toolkits Training at Various Levels

16 Enhancing human capacity and facilities to cope with emerging concerns on aquatic animal health Establishment of disease surveillance system Domestication and development of disease resistant strains for aquaculture Development of guidelines on the proper use of chemicals in aquaculture Methodology for analysis of chemical and drug residues in aquaculture products Training Courses (including on-line courses) and capacity building through the implementation of relevant activities Relevant capacity building activities undertaken by SEAFDEC (4)
