dc.description.abstractDetails are given of activities conducted by the SEAFDEC Philippine-based Aquaculture Department (AQD) concerning the promotion of the commercialization of aquaculture technologies. The Department has subjected research technologies to various validation trials through a technology verification and extension program. At present, AQD has verified certain aquaculture technologies that can be implemented commercially for such commodities as tiger shrimp, milkfish, grouper, mudcrab, tilapia, catfish and oysters. In addition to training and mass media information activities, AQD has forged ties with private fishpond owners, universities, and other agencies in maintaining demonstration centres for aquaculture technologies, intended to show interested aquaculture farmers the benefits that they can get from adopting AQD s technologies.en
