Reviving seahorse industry brightening
MetadataShow full item record
A research breakthrough holds great promise of reviving the country's moribund seahorse industry. The scientific feat of breeding seahorse in captivity was achieved by researches of Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC AQD) based in the seaside town 24 kilometers west of Iloilo City. Philippine government hosted AQD, currently headed by Dr. Rolando R. Platon, is one of the four technical departments of SEAFDEC, a treaty organization founded in 1967 to promote fisheries development in Southeast Asia.
