Bandar Seri Begawan - A United States-based consultancy firm has signed an agreement with Brunei's Fisheries Department to help local shrimp producers raise harvest volume and quality to meet global standards.

With assistance from USbased Integrated Aquaculture International (IAI), Brunei can raise annual shrimp production from under 400 metric tonnes at present to 1,000 metric tonnes, a level that is seen to create, for the sultanate's shrimp farmers, a significant presence in export -markets, DrGeorge Chamber.lain, IAI's technical director, told The Brunei Times.

Under the three-year contract, IAI experts and local shrimp farmers will study the entire production process, including the marketing aspect and the "human factor" involved, said Faizal Mohd Yacob, the deputy managing director of Semaun Holdings.

"It is crucial that people we have in the system follow proper standardised processes .to further harvest quality shrimps," he said.

Assistance from IAI is also expected to help local shrimp farmers to harvest during the monsoon season, which is usually the toughest time of the year for producers, Chamberlain said in an interview in Mentiri.

Statistics from the Fisheries Department show that in 2005 shrimp production from farms owned by 13 producers totalled less than 400 metric tonnes, valued at $3.16 million. Farms in the country cover - a total land area of 230 hectares. Annual global output is seven million metric tonnes.

The department attributes the industry's low production to several factors, such as low production capacity, and inconsistent and low quality production due to inefficient pond management.

In November last year Brunei delegates attended the Global Shrimp Outlook/Global Fish Outlook 2006 held in Miami, Florida in the USto gain exposure in the global seafood market, network with other shrimp market players and keep abreast with trends in the global shrimp market.

Under the department's longterm strategic plans up to 2025, the value of the aquaculture industry's annual production is projected to reach up to $200 million per year. The industry is expected to attain a sustainable level of production, with 230 hectares of land already developed for shrimp farming.

Among the objectives of the project is to raise production to more than 100 million shrimp fries a year, the production of big-sized tiger prawns for the global market, as well as to push Brunei Darussalam to become a regional technological hub fot the production of SPF tiger prawns. -- Courtesy of Borneo Bulletin
