MetadataShow full item record
A project funded by the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-PCAARRD) has identified 14 locations having a total area of 6,283.30 hectares as potential sites for mussel culture, which is expected to increase the country’s production of the marine product. The project, “Suitability assessment and database development for enhanced mussel culture management using geospatial technologies,” is being implemented by the University of the Philippines Visayas (UPV) and UP Diliman, under the leadership of Carlos Baylon of UPV, Miagao, Iloilo. “The project aims to identify potential sites that favor the hydrographic and biophysical conditions for mussel growth. Identification of suitable and potential areas for mussel culture could provide area for expansion of mussel culture leading to an increased mussel production,” the DOST-PCARRD said in a statement.
