In its initial year, this project generated an inventory and review of existing aquaculture standards, regulations and related practices in various ASEAN Member States. It also included an identification of obstacles and bottlenecks in the development and implementation of GAqP especially in the CLMV countries. Through this project, a common ASEAN GAqP based on globally accepted standards and a strategic plan for its operationalisation and sustainability is now available.
The project is implemented under the leadership of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources/National Fisheries Research and Development Institute (BFAR/NFRDI), Department of Agriculture of the Philippines and the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Centre, Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC/AQD).
