Research helps bangus industry grow
MetadataShow full item record
In technology development, the Iloilo-based research center SEAFDEC or the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center pioneered the artificial propagation of milkfish as far back as 1976, and collaborated with BFAR in extending hatchery technology in the country. SEAFDEC has also studied the basic biology and physiology of milkfish. These studies have been the prelude to establishing nutrient or feed requirements, stocking densities in sea cages, maintaining fish health, even in engineering the design of milkfish egg collectors, among others.
