Description

Brazilian psiculture has been increasing about 30% per year, having as main factors its profitability and source of quality protein. Its strong interaction with water resources and its interference on the biodiversity turns it both potentially exposed to, as well as, source of negative environmental impacts, requiring the adoption of less impactant management practices. The producer needs information on these practices and computer tools that allow access to them in a single repository could motivate the fast incorporation of these activities to the property. Despite of African origin, the tilapiculture is nowadays present at a large part of Brazilian territory, under pressure for greater product quality and sustainable practices. Embrapa Environment has identified Good Practices of Management (GPM) for tilapia that can be immediately used by producer, from his observation on the property. Aquisys Computer System was developed in PHP, HTML and MySQL computer languages and made use of Apache server in order to make information available, via dynamic Web access, for the diagnosis of these assessment, as well as, economic, production, management and water quality indicators. The present work presents the Aquisys tools for tilapiculture on Brazilian environment.
