The SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department is mandated to: 1) promote and undertake aquaculture research that is relevant and appropriate for the region; 2) develop human resources for the region; and, 3) disseminate and exchange information in aquaculture. The Aquaculture Department in the Philippines maintains 4 stations: in Iloilo Province, the Tigbauan Main Station and Dumangas Brackishwater Station; in Guimaras, the Igang Marine Station; and, in Rizal, the Binangonan Freshwater Substation. Highlights are provided of the research programmes and activities conducted by the department during the year 2002.
Significant advances were made in the development and standardization of diagnostic procedures for important viral diseases in shrimps and marine fish. Innovations in the conduct of our training programs were introduced. For the first time, AQD has delivered two distance learning courses serving more participants at much lesser cost. An aquafarmers forum, where inquiries or discussion on certain problems may be held on-line, was also launched. AQD further intensified the promotion and commercialization of aquaculture technologies with a broader range of collaborators, including government agencies and the private sector.
