Aquaculture Research/Information Resources

International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM)

ICLARM's network of tropical agricultural scientists links researchers engaged in tropical integrated agriculture-aquaculture farming systems development, research in the genetics of fish cultured in the tropics, and coastal production of tropical mollusks. Research scientists whose major works are in these fields are invited to join the Network. ICLARM publishes Aquabyte Newsletter. ISSN 0116-6972. For a sample copy, contact:
