carp farming

crucian carp image from www.fao.orgFisheries Global Information System (part of the FAO) have produced a fact sheet on farming crucian carp (Carassius carassius).

Global production of farmed crucian carp was only 2977 tonnes in 1950 but had reached 1 702 778 tonnes by 2002, an increase of more than 572 times in 52 years. Crucian carp ranks 6th among all cultured freshwater fish globally and contributed 7.4% of the world freshwater aquaculture production in 2002. Most of the expansion was in China where the average annual growth rate between 1993 and 2002 was 21.6%/yr. Expansion in other countries has been much slower, due to the relatively small size and large number of fine inter-muscular bones, which make the fish less acceptable to consumers in many countries. Taiwan Province of China is another important producer; its annual production was maintained above 3000 tonnes/yr in the early 1980s (with a peak of 3764 tonnes in 1981) but has fluctuated wildly; from 1997-2002 it was in the 2000-2500 tonnes/yr range. Production in Japan, which has a long history of cultivating this species, is much less now than it was in the late 1960s.

The total value of cultured crucian carp production globally was US$ 1.20 billion in 2002, representing an APR of 15.4/yr. This apparently slower rate of expansion in value is mainly due to the devaluation of Chinese currency against the US dollar.

    medrol vet costo The jury was composed of six women, almost all of whom were white. Although the panel’s racial makeup reflects Seminole County’s overwhelmingly white population, the lack of black representation was unfortunate in that it will likely fuel charges that the country’s criminal justice system is stacked against equal justice even when an unarmed young black man is gunned down. Such assertions are no more valid under these circumstances than accusations by Zimmerman partisans that the verdict proves that he was railroaded into a murder trial merely to ease racial tensions.
