New Hampshire—UNH and GAA Partner on EMS Training


The Responsible Aquaculture Foundation (RAF), the charitable arm of the Global Aquaculture Alliance, is partnering with the University of New Hampshire (UNH) to deliver online learning on the prevention and management of early mortality syndrome (EMS) for farmers and other stakeholders in Vietnam.


Developed by the UNH Cooperative Extension, the UNH School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering and New Hampshire Sea Grant and based on research conducted by GAA and RAF, six learning modules will be delivered online in a mobile-friendly format to Vietnamese farmers, processors, feed manufacturers, extension educators, regulators and government personnel.  The modules will address diagnostics, breeding, hatchery, farm, feed and zone management.


The training will be hosted on the RAF website using SoftChalk, e-learning software, to pilot the cloud-based training.  It is expected to be ready for delivery by the third quarter of 2015.
