AQUACULTURE

The sea cucumber aquaculture provides a high production to cover the increasing demand of this product from Asian countries. sea cucumber production is showed as a good option to decrease the fishery pressure on wild stocks and can also be considered a management tool for further restocking actions (if they are advisable). The use of these species on integrated multitrophic aquaculture systems, allows to reduce negative impacts, diversify target species, increase production and economic returns.

FISHERIES

Most of the sea cucumber stocks are depleted or overexploited around the world. A right stock assessment is mandatory previous to the development of a fishery focused on these target species; the establishment of a strict management of those fisheries is also advisable to avoid over-exploitation.

EDUCATION AND TRAINING

Sea cucumber can be considered as new commercial resource on countries from Mediterranean and NE Atlantic coasts; same situation on some African and Central American countries. Scarce consultants specialized on this resource are available on these geographical areas, therefore it is necessary to train new people on sea cucumber aquaculture and fishery management fields.
