The projects include increased production of fry and fingerlings for distribution to fisherfolk, expansion of a multi-species marine fish hatchery, and upgrading of the seaweed tissue culture laboratory, all at BFAR-ISRS. The multi-species hatchery is a joint project of the DA-BFAR, Puerto Princesa City, (which provided the land), and aquaculture department of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, which provided technical assistance and design of the hatchery coplex.
