MetadataShow full item record
Department of Agriculture (DA) Secretary Arthur Yap launched last week the P15 million national abalone breeding and culture program spearheaded by the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) and Bureau of Fisheries and Agriculture Research (BFAR) in Tigbauan, Iloilo. The Five-year project aims to reinvigorate the thinning abalone industry - in which the meat of the mollusk is considered a delicacy- to capture the highly lucrative global market of this export product.
