MetadataShow full item record
A team of scientists and researchers from the Western Philippines University (WPU) in Palawan province received a P4.3 million financial assistance from the United States Agency for International Aid to help increase the supply of abalone. Lota Alcantara-Creencia, who heads the research and development team, said increasing abalone production in coastal communities would provide fishermen with a source of additional income. As a supplemental source of livelihood, abalone, which can be found in many coastal areas, is a high value commodity.
