Activity 3 : Fish Fry Hatchling Project, Sabah
1. Project Objectives

  • Produce and supply of fish fry to LKIM fish farming projects and private companies in Sabah.
  • Reduce the import of marine fish fry from foreign countries.
  • Assist in the development of the nation’s fish farming industry especially for caged aquaculture.

2. Project Components

  • The implementation of this project will include the hatching, supply and installation of infrastructure for hatching including consultation services on the research of area suitability (quality of water source and others)
  • Production of fry would require the use of fish brood stock from local sources. A total of 10 cycles of fish fry hatching is required in a year to produce a number of 100,00 – 500,000 fish fry at 3gm in size.
  • The hatching project will be managed entirely by the project team. The staffs requirement will be as follows:
    1. Manager – 1 (E03)
    2. Technician – 1 (E01)
    3. Supervisor – 1 (E07)

Activity 4 : Seaweed Project, Sabah

1. Project Objectives

  • Aiding in the completion of a special area dedicated for the development of seaweed and is equipped with the basic infrastructure and other industrial support system for culturing activity and processing of value added seaweed-based products.

  • Induce the production of quality seaweed seedlings (parental stocks) by providing nursery and seaweed seedling banks. This activity will ensure constant supply of quality seedlings in addition to higher returns to the producer. The production of dried seaweed within a 1 hectare area s is estimated at 8.4 metric tonnes a year (4 cycles’ yearly x 3,000 seedlings x 10 rows x 70% lives x 10% dried).
