MetadataShow full item record
The potentials of two sectors of the fisheries industry are expected to be considerably boosted soon with a breakthrough in aquaculture biotechnology research achieved by scientists of a Southeast Asian center based here. The breakthrough chalked up by the government-hosted Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC AQD) was the cloning of the hormone that controls the growth of rabbitfish (locally known as danggit) and milkfish. Dr. Rolando R. Platon, SEAFDEC AQD chief, announced the research headway during the celebration of the agency's 27th anniversary last July 6-7.
