Improvement of Aquaculture Environment Control
Summary:
Taiwan is surrounded by sea and it brings environmental advantages for aquaculture industry development. Over the decades many culturing and breeding techniques have been developed in Taiwan for rearing high economic value species. Nevertheless, the good culturing environment control is still the key factor for the production successes and the operational effectiveness. While many competing countries are making breakthroughs in aquaculture techniques and posing threads to Taiwan industry, it is necessary to keep strengthening the production structure in Taiwan. And we believe it would eventually help Taiwan aquaculture industry remain sustainable and stay competitive in the global market.

Onsite Expo Meeting Room A 2 Aquaculture 4.0 - IoT and Biotechnology for Development of Precision Aquaculture
Summary:
With the rapid global changes in the 21st century, aquaculture should be transformed into a knowledge- based, environment-friendly, high-tech industry in order to remain competitive and sustainable. In this presentation, we will introduce a new aquaculture production model i.e. aquaculture 4.0 which employed modern IoT technology and biotechnology strategies to revolutionize aquaculture. Three sub-systems were developed to fulfill the goal; 1)Advanced monitoring of aquaculture environment by ICT technology, i.e. IoT+ aquaculture system means extensive measuring, monitoring and control. 2)Automatic species recognition, weight determination and precise feeding system-the collection of biological data on individual length and weight of specimen has always been an important part of aquaculturists. 3)Tele-diagnosis system for fish diseases. Since ICT and IoT technology are used to collect information from farmers, biotechnology can provide the solution for the problems of commercial fish farming.

Onsite Expo Meeting Room B 2 Shrimp disease prevention and treatment in Taiwan
Summary:
Aquaculture is one of the most important economic activities in Asia and is presently the fastest growing sector of food production in the world. Shrimp is regarded as an important culture species. However, intensive aquaculture has caused the ecological environment changes, improper medication, pathogen resistance, disease outbreaks and lead to the huge mortality of shrimp. Aquatic animal drugs are serious issues and it is very important to look for proper and safe natural compounds to replace chemicals. Recently we have found that some extracts from algae and plant can enhance shrimp immunity. We also discovered a special protein that can induce the anti-viral activity. It indicates that the natural extracts from algae and plant are excellent candidates to develop feed additives.

Biotechnology to Accelerate Aquaculture Development-Using Grouper Industry As An Example
Summary:
 

Dr. Lu Ming-Wei
Department of Aquaculture, National Taiwan Ocean University
Onsite Expo Meeting Room B 4 The present situation and looking to the future of Taiwan grouper aquaculture
Summary:
Grouper are among the most popular and important species cultured in the Asia -Pacific region. This high-value grouper species is increasingly becoming a popular cultured species in many parts of the world including Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong and Mainland China. Grouper are cultured either in floating net cages or earthen ponds. 
The mass grouper larvae production technology is already established, but seed production is still inconsistent and insufficient quantity to meet the highly demand of grow-out culture. The grouper culture in Taiwan can be divided into four stages: the first stage from eggs to 0.5g larvae, the second stage from 0.5 g larvae to 7 g juveniles, the third stage from 7 g juveniles to adults, and the fourth stage from adult to brood stock culture. Grouper larvae are small and fragile with small reserves of endogenous nutrition (yolk sac) and low initial feeding rates. At the first stage, insufficient nutrition supply and viral infection cause mass mortality. These adverse factors are considered to be a fundamental cause of the high mortality and delayed development during larval culture. However, we overcome these problems to produce grouper fry and have high production of grouper recently. In the future, we need to apply advanced technologies to guarantee high quality of grouper production such as hybrid breeding technology, against disease strain, high growth stain and food safety.

How traceability and good agricultural practice certification help in export and domestic markets?
Summary:
Taiwan Good Agricultural Practice (TGAP) combines traceability certification and assured safe products. It is an open, transparent and traceable system of safety and assurance that is consistent with the open, safe and trustworthy objectives pursued by new types of consumers, “From Farm to Table". However, the success of all agricultural operations still rely heavily on sales rather than production, traceability, good agricultural practices and other certifications, might be a powerful "blessing" or "maintaining" tool for brand and marketing, yet not necessarily a effective "brand building" panacea. For those farmers who are willing to work on the distribution network, could obtain the most substantial benefit from traceability certification.

The missing part for water quality in aquaculture: free radicals
Summary:
Due to some unknown parameters of water quality testing for aquacultures in the past, many diseases occurred to aquatic animals even with good reports of water quality. That is, the parameters for water quality testing were not the factors causing the diseases of aquatic animals. Many research institutes have devoted to investigating the indexes of water quality for years. Free radicals in the environment are one of the most critical indexes of water quality.
Free radicals, the unstable species excited by the environment, can cause damages in genes, cells and immune systems. The characteristics of damages caused by free radicals are typically degenerative, hereditary, and irreparable. Therefore, the following phenomena appear:
1. Aquatic animals die after the rain.
2. Spawns become feebler after the damage occurs.
3. Aquatic animals can have a relapse easily after injuries. 
Free radicals in ponds come from air pollution and the overused substrate. That is the reason why the death of aquatic animals usually happens after the rain. In addition, new ponds usually have the higher yield.

Advancing New Agriculture Innovative Industrial Cluster –
The Current Status and Prospect of Pingtung Agricultural Biotechnology Park

Summary:
In order to cope with the current agricultural problems in Taiwan, the Council of Agriculture acts up to President’s governance blueprint and launches the “Project of Advancing New Agricultural Innovation”.  Through 3 major governance axes including setting up agricultural models, establishing food security and safety system, and increasing marketing ability, it will reverse the old thinking to build a root-strengthening and renovated New Agriculture, and make Taiwan agriculture a profitable and sustainable vital industry in the new era.
In terms of New Agriculture development, Taiwan possesses various important competitive advantages, including rich biodiversity, abundant industrial talents, solid research and development resources…etc.  In particular, traditional agriculture has gradually transformed to startup agro-enterprises with ability of R&D and smart production.  Those startup enterprises, guided under the government’s policies, have flocked together in Pingtung Agricultural Biotechnology Park (PABP), Council of Agriculture, Executive Yuan since December 2006.  6 major industrial clusters and upstream/downstream industrial chain have been formed in PABP, which is the key point for Taiwan agriculture to step towards international markets.
PABP is the only one national science park focus on agriculture in Taiwan.  The purpose of its establishment is to induce the agricultural talents and agro-bio enterprises and develop the agro-biotechnology industrial cluster.  Since 2006, PABP has successfully attracted 107 tenants and formed 6 clusters, spanning areas as natural products, aquaculture breeding, husbandry material & animal health, agro-bio materials, biotechnical service, and energy saving & ecological agro-production system.  The investment in PABP has reached NT$10.468 billion (about US$349 million), and it created around NT$6.047 billion (about US$202 million) output value in 2016.  This makes PABP the unique agricultural biotechnology and value-added cluster in the world.
PABP follows the New Agriculture policy and has facilitated many successful cases of increasing added-value by innovation, combining local agro-products, and promoting eco-friendly cultivation.  Meanwhile, PABP assists industry to bring in energy-saving and automatic facilities to build the precision agriculture with smart production.  It also coaches park tenants to structure various international marketing channels for agro-products, to carry out agricultural sustainable development, and to step towards global stages.
Prospecting for future, in addition to actively developing the agro-biotechnology industries including developing new animal/plant varieties and seedlings, animal/plant health management, circular economy, and smart agriculture 4.0… etc., PABP will implement the base expansion and reinforce the platform function of import/export, and incubate industrial talents.  This will lead Taiwan agricultural transformation and create the cutting-edge New Agriculture cluster.

Onsite Expo Meeting Room A 2 The practice and development of legumes farming in central Taiwan
Summary:
Mass production of legumes in Europe and North America is mainly dependent on the agricultural mechanization. But in Taiwan, the scattered farmland and small landowner limited the work of farmland integration and levelling to match the effectiveness of agricultural mechanization, which also affects the rights of the original cultivator. This talk is a concept and practice of production by masses, including the introduction of new technology and management rules designed in the soybeans farming by CTAC (Central Taiwan Agricultural Cooperation) to achieve the balance of production and sales and social responsibility.  It would be a triple win situation for the environment, local farmers, and consumers.
