MetadataShow full item record
The Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) cited its contributions to sustainable aquaculture in view of environment issues and climate change, with the reappointment of its chief, for the third consecutive term, Dr. Joebert D. Toledo. A SEAFDEC press release said that this reappointment showed the Philippine government’s trust and recognition of the institution’s progress in aquaculture research and development under Toledo’s leadership. With Toledo at the helm, there has been a significant increase in the number of SEAFDEC’s foreign and local partners, and in the number of researchers and scientists who joined the institution. Further, SEAFDEC has played a significant role in supporting the government’s aquaculture strategy for food security and poverty alleviation in rural areas, by refining science-based aquaculture technologies through increased budget allocations.
