SEAFDEC/AQD experience in mangrove-friendly aquaculture training and extension
MetadataShow full item record
SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC/AQD) is mandated to develop human resources and disseminate and exchange information in aquaculture. Towards this direction, AQD’s recent thrusts are focused on the verification, packaging, and commercialization of the technologies developed through research. AQD disseminates and exchanges information on aquaculture research and technology through training, extension services, community-based projects and mass media. Through these strategies, AQD aims to reach out to more clientele which include among other sectors the private industry, research and academic institutions, regional and international organizations, policy-makers, non-government organizations, resource managers, SEAFDEC member-countries, local and national government and the fisherfolk. For the past two years, the scope of training courses and extension services of AQD have been expanded from technological viability to sustainability i.e., technological feasibility, economic viability, environmental sustainability and social equity. To attain sustainable aquaculture the following elements were considered: status of technology, conditions of the coastal resources, socio-economic attributes of the community and other stakeholders and institutional arrangements on sustainable aquaculture. Starting 1997, subjects on mangrove-friendly aquaculture and coastal resource management were incorporated into the curriculum of training courses. These courses are the following:
- Third Country Training Program on Coastal Aquaculture and Resource Management for trainees from Asian countries
- On-site Training on Sustainable Aquaculture and Coastal Resource Management in Vietnam
- Sustainable Aquaculture and Coastal Resource Management for extension workers and fishery school teachers

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.

Proceedings of the Aquaculture Workshop for SEAFDEC/AQD Training Alumni, 8-11 September 1992, Iloilo, Philippines CT Villegas, MT Castaños & RB Lacierda (Eds.) - 1993 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development CenterThe 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.
