Conference paper- In JV Juario & LV Benitez (Eds.), Seminar on Aquaculture Development in Southeast Asia, 8-12 September 1987, Iloilo City, Philippines, 1988 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development CenterA special workshop among participants was conducted to assess the status of the aquaculture industry in Southeast Asia, particularly in Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. Although hatchery, nursery, and grow-out culture techniques had already been developed for most of the economically important species cultured in Southeast Asia, the outcome of the workshop showed that there are still major constraints to be able to increase production. Further studies have to be conducted to have greater control of factors that lead to better production. The participants prioritized the economically important species and the research area for each species for the Region.
Conference paper- In JV Juario & LV Benitez (Eds.), Seminar on Aquaculture Development in Southeast Asia, 8-12 September 1987, Iloilo City, Philippines, 1988 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development CenterWith training as one of its three mandated functions, the SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department offered its first training course in 1974.
