Biotechnology can trigger a ‘blue revolution’ – scientist
MetadataShow full item record
Biotechnology can trigger a new revolution – a "blue revolution". "Blue revolution" pertains to great strides in production of food of fish origin. This is specifically true for fishfarming or aquaculture, which has in recent years been regarded by research and development (R&D) administrators and scientists as the "last frontier" for sustaining contribution of fish to food security. Biotechnology has the potential to enhance aquaculture productivity, asserted Dr. Felix Ayson, scientist of the government-hosted Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC AQD) based in Tigbauan, Iloilo.
