Carp Genetic Resources for Aquaculture in Asia

Penman D, Gupta MV & Dey MM (eds.) (2005) Carp Genetic Resources for Aquaculture in Asia. WorldFish Center Technical Report, 65. Panang, Malaysia: WorldFish Center.

There are over 1 300 species of cyprinids in Asia, and these are utilized by people for food (capture fisheries and aquaculture) and as ornamental species. For people in many parts of Asia, cyprinids form an integral part of their livelihoods, as subsistence or commercial fishers, hatchery operators, nursery operators, seed traders, ongrowers, middlemen, fish sellers, consumers, or producers of ornamental species. The habitats of many of these species are also increasingly threatened by human activities. It is thus vital that we protect this part of our biodiversity, since it sustains human populations as well as having its own intrinsic value.
