The SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department at 21: R&D for sustainable aquaculture
MetadataShow full item record
This paper reviews the research output of the SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department (AQD) over the past 21 years of its existence. These realized studies are compared with the priority problem areas recommended for research by international or regional seminar-workshops convened by AQD in 1983, 1987, 1991 and 1994. Between 1976 and 1994, AQD researchers produced 554 publications, including 274 in journals indexed by the Institute for Scientific Information, 122 in other journals, and 158 in conference proceedings. Another 82 publications from work done outside AQD were authored or co-authored by AQD researchers, mostly during their graduate programs. In addition, AQD published 21 extension manuals and 14 technical reports and monographs by AQD researchers, and co-published two other monographs by non-AQD researchers. AQD's major contributions have been the technologies for tiger shrimp seed production, grow-out culture, feeds, and disease control; milkfish seed production and feeds; rabbitfish seed production; and tilapia feeds and strain selection. Communication and two-way feedback among AQD researchers and representatives of the aquaculture industry and the SEAFDEC Member Countries must be improved to fine-tune AQD research. In the late 1980s, AQD started redirecting some of its research towards environmental problems in aquaculture. Much of the near future will be spent implementing research imperatives in sustainable and responsible aquaculture.

Proceedings of the Seminar-Workshop on Aquaculture Development in Southeast Asia and Prospects for Seafarming and Searanching, 19-23 August 1991, Iloilo City, Philippines F Lacanilao, RM Coloso & GF Quinitio (Eds.) - 1994 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development CenterDocuments the presentations at ADSEA '91, the 2nd Seminar-Workshop on Aquaculture Development in Southeast Asia. ADSEA '91 includes reviews of the status of the researches conducted by Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC/AQD) on the following cultured species sea bass, groupers, snappers, milkfish, rabbitfish, mullet, tilapia, carp, catfish, bivalves and the seaweed Gracilaria. Topics on aquaculture development in Southeast Asia and Japan were also discussed. The status and development of seafarming and searanching in different SEAFDEC member countries and their ecological, social and economic implications were also presented. The contributions of the selected participants during the meeting which are contained in this volume are cited individually.
Book chapterQF Miravite - In D Spurgeon (Ed.), Give us the Tools: Science and Technology for Development, 1979 - International Development Research CentreIn 1977, scientists at the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Centre (SEAFDEC) in the Philippines became the first anywhere to succeed in breeding milkfish (Chanos chanos) in captivity. The advance was made possible by an IDRC grant, approved in 1974, for a three-year project of research in the breeding and rearing of this important source of protein. The initial grant, for $826,000, was renewed for another three years in December 1978 in the amount of $421,100.

Series: ACIAR Proceedings; No. 90The Second International Conference on the Culture of Penaeid Prawns and Shrimps (SICCPPS) was convened in Iloilo City by the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) on May 14-17 1996 to bring together scientists, researchers and industry practitioners to discuss developments and constraints in shrimp culture. Two simultaneous workshops were held after the presentation of scientific papers: the Workshop on Seed Production and the Workshop on Pond Grow-out Culture of Shrimp.
