The Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research recently conducted studies with the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (Seafdec) Aquaculture Department in Tigbauan, Iloilo that addressed major constraints in mudcrab farming management. Total investment on giant crab monoculture in tidal flats with mangroves reached P14,039 after the P8,764 operating capital was added to the cost od development worth P5,275.
