Apahap raising in fishponds
MetadataShow full item record
Apahap (seabass), a freshwater fish species, can now be profitably grown in fishponds. This was proven by a research project involving a technology developed by the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC AQD) based in Tigbauan, Iloilo. Titled "Institutional Capacity Building on Sustainable Aquaculture," the R&D project was undertaken in Hamtik, Antique, as a collaborative effort of local government units (LGU) and SEAFDEC AQD. It was underwritten by the Countryside Development Fund (CDF) of Antique's Rep. Exequiel Javier. The SEAFDEC AQD (dream project" aims to empower aquatic resources users by providing them knowledge to become efficient managers and prudent users of their resources).
