Binangonan aquaculture station chalks up R&D breakthroughs
MetadataShow full item record
The frontiers of research in freshwater aquaculture in the country continue to broaden, thanks to the breakthroughs achieved by the Binangonan Freshwater Station (BFS) in this lakeside town. Established in 1976 at a 45-hectare area at Tapao Point, barangay Pipindan, along the shores of storied Laguna de Bay, the BFS has over the past quarter of a century chalked up significant research headways in freshwater species that helped sustain the people around the 90,000-hectare lake and adjacent regions. BFS, which celebrated its 26th anniversary last July 26, was set up by the government-hosted, Tigbauan, Iloilo-based Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC AQD) to serve as a center for research in freshwater aquaculture and lake ecology.
