The workshop was conducted to maintain linkage between Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, Aquaculture Department and its alumni. It also aimed to: assess the effectiveness of the training alumni and among trainees; inform alumni of the recent technologies developed by the Department; recommend ways to make the training courses more responsive to the needs of the fish farmers and the aquaculture industry. The training alumni identified several problems regarding the capability of the technical staff in aquaculture, i.e. shrimp seed production, marine fish seed production, grow-out culture, and fish diseases. The contributions of the selected participants during the meeting which are contained in this volume are cited individually.

BookSoutheast Asian Fisheries Development Center, Aquaculture Department - 2009 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development CenterThis handbook covers four important factors in undertaking sustainable aquaculture livelihood namely: (1) aquatic resources and environment; (2) socioeconomic attributes of fishing communities; (3) appropriate and economically feasible aquaculture technologies; and, (4) policy issues and institutional arrangements related to a balanced fishery management and aquaculture livelihood. The long-term outcomes of these strategies shall be measured in terms of environmental sustainability, economic uplift of the community, and equitable distribution of benefits among different sectors of the community.
Conference paperCT Villegas - In TU Bagarinao & EEC Flores (Eds.), Towards sustainable aquaculture in Southeast Asia and Japan: Proceedings of the Seminar-Workshop on Aquaculture Development in Southeast Asia, Iloilo City, Philippines, 26-28 July, 1994, 1995 - SEAFDEC Aquaculture DepartmentThe SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department (AQD) is mandated to develop human resources and to disseminate and exchange information for aquaculture development in the region. In 1991-1994, a total of 294 participants attended 23 sessions of nine training courses. Many others participated in AQD's student practicum, internships, and summer work programs. AQD conducted seminarworkshops on aquaculture development in southeast Asia, fish breeding, feeds and feeding, and training needs. Information materials (newsletters, a monograph, two extension manuals, leaflets, and videos) were produced based on research at AQD. To assist fishfarmers and other sectors of the local aquaculture industry, AQD conducted on-site or outreach seminars, and provided resource persons during fairs and exhibits, seminars, and consultative meetings. The AQD Library is open to all users; in addition to the collection of printed materials, a CD-ROM reader is now available for fast retrieval of bibliographic information from computerized databases like ASFA.
Research and training on fish diseases at the SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department in 2000-2004: A review. K Nagasawa - In CR Lavilla-Pitogo & K Nagasawa (Eds.), Transboundary Fish Diseases in Southeast Asia: Occurence, Surveillance, Research and Training. Proceedings of … Diseases in Southeast Asia: Occurence, Surveillance, Research and Training, Manila, Philippines, 23-24 June 2004, 2004 - SEAFDEC Aquaculture DepartmentThis paper reviews various research and training activities on fish diseases at the Aquaculture Department of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) in Iloilo, Philippines. The activities were implemented through the "Regional Fish Disease Project" of the Government of Japan Trust Fund starting in March 2000. A total of 29 research studies were conducted from 2000-2004 in the following aspects: (1) establishment and standardization of diagnostic methods; (2) biology and pathogenesis of disease pathogens; (3) disease prevention and control; (4) establishment of evaluation methods for residual chemicals in aquaculture products; and (5) epizootiology and prevention of koi herpesvirus disease. Some of these studies were conducted by scientists from the Department of Fisheries in Thailand, and from the Marine Fisheries Research Department (MFRD) of SEAFDEC in Singapore. Two sessions of hands-on training on "Important Viral Diseases of Shrimp and Marine Fish" was implemented in 2002 and 2003. Participants from the SEAFDEC member countries were funded by the project to attend the training course. The course consisted of both lecture and practical hands-on sessions. The latter focused on the use of molecular tools and other important techniques in the diagnosis of viral diseases of shrimp and marine fish. This review also provides information on publications such as proceedings, manuals, review articles, scientific papers, terminal report, annual reports, flyers, pamphlets and others as the outputs of research activities and international meetings that were organized with financial support from the project.
