MetadataShow full item record
Local government unit of this town formally received a mud crab hatchery from a government project recently. Aside from supplying crablets for the benefit of mud crab farmers from Cebu, Negros Oriental, Leyte, it is expected to boost livelihood opportunities. Constructed in 2014 with funding from the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-PCAARRD), the hatchery is manned by technical staff who were trained on hatchery, nursery, and grow-out culture of mud crab. The Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center-Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC-AQD) in Tigbauan, Iloilo trained these technical staff.
