THAITiP is a Thai aquaculture multi-stakeholder platform dedicated to develop, support and promote technology and innovation in the aquaculture sector.
Thailand has been the pioneering country in terms of South East Asian aquaculture.
Since the late 1970s, different academic institutions in Europe (e.g. the Universities of Stirling and Ghent) have been involved in providing technical assistance for aquaculture projects in Thailand. Thai students have qualified to Master and PhD level, many of whom now fill leading positions at a governmental level (e.g. within the Department of Fisheries), in education (at different universities) and in the private sector.
Aquaculture exports to Europe, especially shrimp and prawn, have steadily increased and many European companies have since established strong commercial representation in Thailand.
In many respects, Thailand has been a pioneer in modern aquaculture developments with different freshwater, brackish water and marine species.
THAITiP is one of the National Platforms from EURASTiP. Know more about our organization
