MetadataShow full item record
From 2002 to 2009, the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center / Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC/AQD) focused most of its research and development efforts on six thematic areas (e.g., seed supply, fish nutrition & feed development, fish health, biotechnology, environment friendly fish farming, and rural aquaculture). As a result, hatchery and grow-out technologies were developed or refined (documented in over 200 science papers and in 49 field manuals) for dissemination in Southeast Asia through training of over 2,000 government extensionists / private entrepreneurs and through other extension services. With technology availability as main criterion, AQD rated itself scores of 3-4 out of 5 in terms of accomplishments in the six thematic areas.
