Fibre for your kids

Fibre for your kids

Do you get enough fibre? No..then apparently you’re the exception.A recent survey by the Gut Foundation found that only one in ten children currently has a high-fibre breakfast cereal or even one piece of fruit a day. And that’s not setting up good habit for later life, with two-thirds of adults and children surveyed already suffering abdominal symptoms such as diarrhea,constipation or pain.


To get sufficient daily fibre, you need to eat at least three servings of veggies, two of fruit and high-fibre breakfast cereal to keep your gut in shape and stave off future problems

E-mail Etiquette – readers digest



Dos and Don’ts

  1. Don’t use CAPITAL LETTERS-it’s the equivalent of shouting
  2. Don’t send emotionally charged messages.If you wouldn’t say it to the recipient’s face,don’t send it
  3. Don’t e-mail confidential material.It could end up in the wrong hands.Send a letter instead.
  4. Do be specific in the subject line.Your message could get deleted if it looks like spam
  5. Do answer at the top, not the bottom,of an e-mail.It’s annoying having to scroll down the bottom to read a response.
  6. Do stick with black font, no larger than 12 points in size. This is the easiest type to read.

tiger grouper

1.No stock losses due to adverse climatic and environmental conditions, and there are no predators to manage

2.Able to produce ‘Organic’ fish with no contamination from chemicals, heavy metals, oil and other pollutants

3.Strict quarantine and health management in RAS reduce transfer of viral and other fish diseases in the production system thereby reducing the need to use antibiotics and chemicals

4.Efficient water treatment and water recirculation in the RAS reduce the amount of wastes and pollutants release

5.There is no escape of non-native fish species into the environment

6.No loss of fish feed into the environment

7.Choice of fish species is not limited by farm location and environment

8.Efficient site utilization in RAS reduces competition with other users of water and land resources

9.A 200 mt/yr RAS for example occupies no more than a hectare (ha) of land; similar pond based farming will require between 25 and 40 ha or more land.

  1. RAS stands for Recirculation Aquaculture System
  2. A hi-tech way to grow and farm fish intensively under controlled conditions for optimum survival and growth of fish.
  3. Rears fish at high densities in indoor tanks.
  4. Allows efficient recirculation, filtration and removal of wastes prior to recycling back to the fish grow-out units. New water is added to the RAS only to make up for water loss through system flushing and minor evaporative loss.
  5. Predominantly used in land-based operation.
  6. It involves both freshwater and seawater.

  1. RAS technology has been under intensive R&D for over 30 years.
  2. Many pilot systems with varying degree of efficiencies and performances have been developed.
  3. During early years of RAS development, lack of understanding of this new technology has led to many unsubstantiated and wild claims on their capacity and performance outputs.
  4. This has resulted in many early failures in transferring this technology to some countries and to investors resulting in bad publicity for the RAS technology.
  5. However, the situation is changing rapidly and in recent years, many successful and economically viable RAS have been set up in Australia, Europe and America.
  6. Commercial RAS have been proven to be successful in countries like China (70%), Australia, USA, Canada and Europe.
