      • poverty alleviation -- the community fishery resource management projects in Malalison Island and Honda Bay

      • food security issues -- the technical assistance to local government units on low input aquaculture products like tilapia and mussel-oyster

      • environment-friendly aquaculture technologies -- the development of mudcrab culture techniques in reforested mangrove areas, and the rehabilitation of mangroves / abandoned ponds through aquasilviculture

      • research into export or cash crops -- mudcrab, tiger shrimp, grouper, seabass, snapper, catfish, seaweeds, abalone, marine ornamental fish.

      Also discussed: technology verification activities, training, and information dissemination.

      1999 highlights 

      Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, Aquaculture Department - 2000 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      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.

      2000 highlights 

      Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, Aquaculture Department - 2001 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      In 2000, refinements of already developed technologies and industry practices were aimed at increasing aquaculture production and decreasing production cost through more innovative approaches like the application of biotechnology, particularly on growth acceleration. Technologies were also verified in actual field conditions as to technical, environmental, and socioeconomic considerations. Those found viable were demonstrated in various sites in collaboration with the Philippine government agencies, local government units, and fishfarmers. On the regional level, and initially in collaboration with the Department of Fisheries of Thailand, AQD conducted verification and demonstration activities in Thailand and Vietnam.

      A comparative study of various extenders of milkfish, Chanos chanos (Forsskal) sperm preservation 

      S Hara, JT Canto Jr. & JM Almendras - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1980 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      Four chemical extenders in 7 different concentrations (potassium chloride, sodium chloride, glucose, sodium citrate, Ringer s solution, cow serum and milkfish (Chanos chanos) serum) were compared in the preservation of milkfish sperm. Results showed milkfish serum to be the most suitable of the various extenders tested. This may be attributed to suitable osmotic potential and/or presence of proteins which may have directly or indirectly influenced sperm viability. The effects of milkfish serum on the motility and fertilizing capacity of sperm at different durations of storage however need to be investigated.

      A comparison between the catching efficiency of two milkfish fry collecting gears and their respective modifications 

      GF Quinitio & G Kawamura - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1980 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      An experiment was conducted along the shore of Culasi, Antique in Panay to compare the milkfry (Chanos chanos) catching efficiency of the ordinary fry seine against its innovation and the ordinary sweeper against its 2 modifications. Results show that it is possible to replace the wings of the presently used sweeper and the ends of the fry seine with a coarse-meshed netting. This improvement decreases the water resistance of the gears and thus enables fry gatherers to use larger ones thereby giving more catch.

      Acute toxicity of un ionized ammonia to milkfish (Chanos chanos) fingerlings 

      ER Cruz - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1981 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      The acute toxicity of un-ionized ammonia to milkfish (Chanos chanos) fingerlings was determined using a static bioassay system. Median lethal concentrations found show that milkfish fingerlings have a high tolerance to ammonia and it is unlikely that levels as high as those employed for the acute exposure would be found to occur under natural conditions. Although the threat of acute toxicological effects induced by ammonia are remote, such conditions might be encountered in stressed natural environments or in heavily loaded aquaculture systems.
