Aquaculture of freshwater species in the Mekong regions of Cambodia, Vietnam, Lao PDR and Thailand is an important source of protein and income for small-scale land owners. But the costs of feeding are constraining development of aquaculture. This report describes the current situation with feeds and feeding for inland aquaculture in these countries and identifies the research and training needed to benefit small-scale aquaculture producers.
