MetadataShow full item record
The construction of a modern biotechnology laboratory in this seaside town 24 kilometers west of Iloilo City is nearing completion. The Japanese government-funded, P431-million Laboratory for Advance Aquaculture Technologies within the complex of the Philippine government-hosted Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC AQD) is expected to be completed in early 2003. The scientific edifice was among those visited by key officials of international donor agencies and institutions supporting and working on aquaculture and related fields in Asia and the Pacific who met recently in the Philippines.
