29/01/13: Shrimp production in Nigeria; baby barra released in Australia; olive oils and fish feed

Plans are underway to develop Nigeria's shrimp production potential. Fisheries Society of Nigeria and Winrock International have developed a programme targeted at the shrimp sector. The programme is aimed at aquaculture development, diversification of the finish mono-product base and generating jobs.

Around 30,000 baby barramundi have been released into Lake Kununurra, Western Australia as part of a AU$700,000 project to boost recreational and commercial fishing in the region.
The barramundi have been grown in tanks in Broome since they were spawned in November 2012.

This article presented to the International Atherosclerosis Society looks at alternative lipid sources in fish such as olive oils. It also discusses the relationship between fish consumption and cardiovascular diseases.
