MetadataShow full item record
In view of the seahorses' potentials, researchers worldwide, including those of the Tigbauan, Iloilo-based Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center's Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC-AQD), have been studying the development of captive seahorses for production of fry and juveniles. Barely two years after it launched its own marine ornamental fish program in 1995, SEAFDEC-AQD has recorded its first breakthrough: breeding seahorses in the laboratory.
