A Workshop on Climate Resilient Aquaculture Operation organized by the Inland Fisheries and Aquaculture Division of the Philippines’ Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources tapped SEAFDEC/AQD scientists Drs. Felix G. Ayson and Emilia T. Quinitio as resource speakers.

Dr. Ayson talked on the Environmental Physiology of Milkfish and High-value Species (Grouper) while Dr. Quinitio discussed the Environmental Physiology of Shrimp and Mangrove Crab. Former SEAFDEC/AQD researcher, Engr. Angelito Gonzal, also presented the Generalized Implications of Agro-meteorology Parameters on Water Quality in Brackishwater.

Held last 3-4 May 2016 in Quezon City, the workshop aimed to discuss aquaculture operations in a closed-system environment (hatchery and brackishwater ponds) in order to identify issues and concerns related to risks caused by the changing climate condition as well as to identify approaches to mitigate such risks, and to be resilient in such an event.

Attendees of this event were fish farmers from selected regions where there is high production of crustaceans, milkfish and grouper.
