Posted: Jun. 8, 2012
As more countries search for a sustainable and reliable source of affordable organic protein or vegetables, they are increasingly turning to aquaculture or aquaponics, a sustainable food production system that combines raising fish in tanks with hydroponic gardening. In response to this growing need, the University of Hawai‘i Aquaculture Program has launched a new online community outreach program called ATOLL: Aquaculture Training and Online Learning.
ATOLL will encourage more community members throughout the Pacific region to become aquatic farmers and knowledgeable about aquaponics. The program was created and is under the continuing jurisdiction of UH Manoa Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education Gary Ostrander.
Supported by generous grants from NOAA, the ATOLL program consists of a unique web platform for the delivery of high-quality video training. This unique, non-credit course intends to improve food security in the region and is being offered via Outreach College.
They work with a team of dedicated expert faculty from the Manoa campus, including UH Sea Grant, as well as local farmers and representatives from the Hawaii Department of Agriculture and University of Oregon Sea Grant.
Said McLain, “We are the first university attempting to teach aquaponics in an online setting at a reasonable cost. A few other online programs exist in the world, but they are very expensive. Our program is designed to be an affordable introduction to fish farming and aquaponics for everyone in island communities around the Pacific.”
While broadly trying to improve food security in the region, the program hopes to attract students looking at careers in aquaculture, new workers on commercial fish farms, or community members who wish to start aquaponic gardens for quality home food production.
The program, which launched in January, has thus far attracted over 160 students from 20 countries around the globe.
The program is the brainchild of Tetsuzan Benny Ron, PhD, Aquaculture Program coordinator at UH Manoa. He is assisted by Barbara Payne McLain, PhD, a pioneer in distance education at the Manoa campus, who serves as project director.

CTSA (Center for Tropical and Subtropical Aquaculture)
The Center for Tropical and Subtropical Aquaculture (CTSA) requests pre-proposals for applied research that addresses problems and opportunities in the regional aquaculture industry. In a recent region-wide survey, CTSA stakeholders identified the below strategic areas and species as the top aquaculture development priorities. Pre-proposals that target these strategic areas and priority species will receive highest preference. However, pre-proposals that do not fall under specific priority areas but address CTSA's mission will be considered in our development process. CTSA strongly encourages collaboration between institutions and agencies in the region, as well as shared funding of large priority projects.
CTSA's mission is to support aquaculture research, development, demonstration, and extension education in order to enhance viable and profitable aquaculture in the United States. CTSA is funded by an annual grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). The CTSA region includes the following areas: American Samoa, Guam, Hawaii, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau.
Please note: Desired outcomes and/or deliverables are included where applicable. They represent industry-identified requests and it is strongly recommended that they be addressed in your pre-proposal.
FY 2012 Strategic Areas & Priority Species
Cost Effective Locally-Made Aquatic Feed Nearly all survey participants identified availability of affordable feed as one of the major constraints in the regional development of aquaculture. CTSA would like to solicit a proposal that will develop a cost-effective aquaculture feed using locally available ingredients. The major goal should be to create a local feed that costs less than imported feed for species currently being farmed and/or species identified in the CTSA survey as desired species for regional farming. These include but are not limited to tilapia, marine shrimp, moi, Kahala, rabbitfish, freshwater prawn and groupers.
Tilapia Farming Development In our recent survey, tilapia was identified as the most desired species for aquaculture farming throughout the CTSA region. Although most farming technology is available elsewhere, the development and expansion of tilapia farming still faces regional challenges, including but not limited to sources of fingerlings and farming and importation restrictions of some desired species. CTSA encourages studies to develop desired strains from those that are already locally available, and cannot provide funding to introduce non-native species. We also encourage proposals to develop locally made feed for tilapia.
Rabbitfish farming development Rabbitfish is a highly desired species for farming on almost all Pacific Islands. Currently, the rabbitfish supply for local markets is dependent on wild harvest. Although farming technology is established in several Asian countries, it is still not widely available in the Pacific Islands. CTSA is seeking a project to adapt, demonstrate and transfer rabbitfish farming technology to different Pacific Islands.
Sea Cucumber farming technology With an increased demand for sea cucumber in Asian markets, natural stocks of the species have been over harvested in some Pacific Islands. To mitigate this problem, CTSA recently funded projects to transfer sea cucumber hatchery technology to Pohnpei and Yap. It is important to ensure that any technology transferred throughout the Pacific region is adapted to local conditions, and is being operated wholly by local technicians. Currently, the major issues facing the development of the sea cucumber industry are the lack of farming technology and sources of seedstock within different communities. CTSA is calling for a proposal to continually transfer and demonstrate sea cucumber farming technology in waters around the islands, using locally desired species.
Marine Shrimp farming The CTSA region is known as the main source of SPF white shrimp broodstock for many shrimp farming countries around the world. However, the local shrimp farming industry is still struggling to achieve profitable and sustainable operations, mainly due to the high costs of feed, energy, labor, and transportation on most islands. CTSA is therefore soliciting a proposal for a collaborative effort between researchers and industry members to improve production efficiency and sustainability of marine shrimp technology.
Marine Finfish Farming Technology Farming of marine finfish such as moi, Kahala and groupers has been identified as a commercial aquaculture practice with potential for growth in the region. CTSA has previously supported the development of farming technology for moi and Kahala. However, stakeholders have indicated that existing operations are still struggling with impeding issues, including the lack of a reliable source of fingerlings, expensive feed, and the high cost of energy. Stakeholders have also indicated that groupers are another desirable marine finfish for farming in the region. Grouper farming technology that is currently available in several Asian countries can likely be adapted to regional conditions. CTSA will accept proposals to adapt and/or develop technology that improves the practices, profitability, and sustainability of marine finfish farming in the region.
Freshwater Prawn industry CTSA stakeholders also identified freshwater prawns as a desirable species for regional farming. Freshwater prawn culture was developed in Hawaii over three decades ago. Although the number of prawn farms has decreased in recent years, data from the CTSA survey indicated that freshwater prawns remain a species with potential for profitable farming in the region. However, revitalizing the prawn industry will require solutions for key issues, including seedstock source and cost of feed, energy, and labor, etc. The Center will consider proposals that will improve freshwater prawn farming industry in the region.

Pacific Island Spotlight: Transferring Aquaponics Knowledge to American Samoa
by Harry Ako, Ph.D., and Kiara Sakamoto
An aquaponics system was designed for use in the Pacific Islands (Ako and Baker, 2009). The systems are especially suited for the Pacific Islands or urban environments because they are able to produce large quantities of produce on a relatively small area of land, use negligible amounts of freshwater, and release no effluent into the environment. Our systems grew fish and vegetables symbiotically; the fish provide nutrients in the form of metabolites and the plants use these metabolites for growth, providing clean water for the fish. The original system designed by Rakocy was not optimized and after many years there was not a single commercial entity doing aquaponics (Rakocy, 1989; Rakocy et al., 2004). Our first work was adaptation of a cost effective hydroponics system (Kratky, 2005) which then led to the elucidation of a nutrient flux hypothesis (Ako, 2010). This work matched nutrient production by fish to crop needs. We prepared a workshop and manual (Ako and Baker, 2009) and this led to some establishment of aquaponics businesses and many backyard and urban applications. American Samoa is a group of Pacific Islands where resources such as fertilizer, water, and land are scarce. The population consists mainly of indigenous farmers who work the land in accordance to tradition to produce fruits and vegetables. However, land is at a premium, costing over $40,000 per ¼ acre if available at all. In addition, specialty products are often hard to find and are very expensive in comparison to the prices of the same products in Hawai'i or the United States proper. It would be ideal for farmers to adapt aquaponics for use in American Samoa in order to produce food for themselves and create some income from their production. The present work summarizes the data and knowledge gained from extension work in American Samoa and evaluates the work done to determine the practical use of an aquaponics system there. In the first phase of planning for extension work, housing was considered too expensive for the six week stay there. A farmer, Apela Afoa, volunteered a room of his Western style concrete house for Kiara to live in. His house is located in the village of Taputimu on the Southwestern, flat portion of the island of Tutuila, the largest island in American Samoa. We didn't encounter any traditional one room fale and the traditional hardwood-post guest houses called fale talimalo where family convene for meetings are now made of more modern materials such as concrete and tin. The Afoa house is situated on a small portion of the total property, just over 30 acres of relatively flat, cleared land. Our work plan in extending the aquaponics technology was to build and operate a system for one crop cycle alongside motivated Samoans. We would like to extend special thanks to Apela and Mina Afoa and the entire Afoa family for offering their home and hospitality to us. Most of the materials were bought in Hawai'i and the larger items had to be shipped over to American Samoa. Different services were investigated prior to departure including surface and air freight methods. However, in the course of that research, we found that shipping items to American Samoa using surface freight methods would entail first shipping the items to mainland America, typically to San Francisco, and then shipping from there to American Samoa. This would not save a significant amount of money and we shipped everything by air freight. Thanks to Ian Gurr and Francis Leiato for helping with the purchase of the rest of the building materials in Samoa. Contrary to our original plans, the entire system was built and running by the time the first workshops were given and the participants simply viewed the finished system. This was not a problem since many of the people in American Samoa have practical experiences in carpentry and construction. But the people who helped us build the systems learned a lot. There is nothing like hands on experience. The stacks of bricks that support the 8 x 16 ft grow trays were first leveled. Holes for the net pots were drilled in the polystyrene panels at 12 holes per 2 x 4 ft panel . In the future as shipping costs for polystyrene panels will be very high, perhaps ¼" painted plywood would be used to support net pots. The grow trays were then assembled by clamping the 2x4's to 3 of the edges of a ¾ inch, 8x4 foot plywood. Sides were then screwed to the bottom of the tray . The two trays were constructed separately at first, then pieced together after they were flipped upright. A continuous, two layer sheet of 6mm polyethylene plastic was then laid into the trays and stapled to the tray with a staple gun (Fig. 3). Helpers who volunteered to build the systems felt competent enough to allow them to build much larger systems, such as 12 tray raceways, should they decide to build commercial units. The fish were acquired from a local tilapia farmer named Sefulu Laulu and another farmer named Kamal Singh. Sea Grant agent Ephraim Temple arranged the purchase. Sefulu had been feeding his slow growing, red O. mosambicus hybrid tilapia grated coconut, pig food pellets, bread, and laupele (edible hibiscus) leaves which is why the fish took so long to adapt to the pelleted fish food we use. Kamal's fast growing, black O. niloticus hybrid tilapia adapted immediately to the fish food because he had been feeding them dry dog food and laupele leaves. The CTSA project on locally produced fish food in American Samoa is critical for the future otherwise the whole effort to introduce successful aquaponics there will collapse. Many thanks go to Larry Hirata for filling in rough spots for our systems. Outside of the workshops, most of my time was spent teaching Apela and his family how to feed the fish appropriately and how to test and interpret water chemistry . He and his family are all eager to learn as much as they can about running the system and troubleshooting when necessary. We know that fish feeding drives the success of fish and vegetable growth and suggests water quality issues. The fish feeding and behavior tells us when the system is running efficiently and when maintenance needs to be done. The difference in the successes of Apela's system and Land Grant's two systems (ours and a previously built Rakocy system) illustrated the importance of system management relating to the care of the fish. The system at Land Grant proved to be a challenge since the buildings are closed and inaccessible on the weekends, leaving the fish unfed for two or three days at a time. In contrast, Apela's system could be managed daily as recommended. Even expensive, complex systems such as Land Grant's version of the Rakocy style system falters without proper daily care. Encouraged by his success with our system in his village, Apela plans to provide vegetables for the Sodexo school lunch program and has started developing a co-op he and Larry plan on establishing for his village. He is actively teaching family members and visitors to his system all about it and its care and maintenance. He also plans to expand to the small grocery stores in addition to producing enough to provide for his large family. The New Zealand grown produce that is presently sold in the markets have a very short shelf life and Apela's goal is to expand his farm to about 5 raceways to provide fresh vegetables to the stores in place of the imported ones. Leadership and economic development fit well with his office of high talking chief for his district. We feel that we should work with the local culture rather than opposing or ignoring it. Albert Seliga another local farmer also had a system installed in his backyard. Using the knowledge he gained from the workshops, he plans on providing a nearby restaurant with vegetables from his system. Upon our departure we made it clear that no matter how educated any given farmer is, his success or failure depends on being a professional; dedicated to the care and maintenance of his system.
Hawaii Aquaculture Statistics Released
Hawaii grown aquaculture totaled $30.0 million in 2010, dropping 7 percent from the previous year and falling for the second year. Algae sales accounted for 56 percent of the value and amounted to $16.7 million. The 'other' category which includes seed stock, brood stock, fingerlings, and other items counted by number, accounted for 33 percent of the total or $9.8 million and increasing 26 percent from a year ago. The ornamental category was pegged at $1.8 million or 6 percent of the total. Finfish sales by weight totaled $1.0 million contributing 3 percent to the total. Shellfish sales by weight was valued at $575 thousand, making up the remaining 2 percent of the total.
