AQD continued to pursue its considerable research efforts into mudcrab, tiger shrimp, milkfish, grouper and snapper, tilapia and bighead carp, marine ornamental fishes, seaweeds, and abalone. The seed production and grow-out culture technologies developed from research were verified as to their commercial viability with the help of private fishfarms and local government units in the Philippines. Packets of technology had likewise been extended by AQD through its training courses and information programs.
