AQD holds seminar on environment-friendly aquaculture

SEAFDEC/AQD will hold the international seminar entitled “Environment-friendly aquaculture and stock enhancement in Southeast Asia” on 1 December 2011 at its Training & information conference room in Tigbauan Main Station, Iloilo, Philippines. This is organized by the Faculty of Fisheries Sciences, Hokkaido University in Japan.

Correspondingly, AQD technical assistant at its Natural food laboratory, Ms. Ellen Grace Tisuela, has undergone the Training for cytogenetic studies for hybridization and polyploidization of tropical abalones conducted 3-27 October at Hokkaido University under the framework of the Asia-Africa science platform program of the Japan society for the promotion of science (JSPS) which implements research and fosters young researchers. The seminar will include Ms. Tisuela’s presentation on her study.

Meanwhile, AQD associate scientists Dr. Frolan Aya and Dr. Ma. Michelle Peñaranda, who recently completed the JSPS-supported Advanced program to foster young and female researchers from Southeast Asia in sustainable fisheries science, were likewise invited to present their works on (1) Basic histological studies for larval rearing of fishes and (2) Partial purification of carrageenase from a Philippine seaweed bacterial isolate, respectively.

As part of the three-year research collaboration on the Establishment of research and educational network for science of sustainable fisheries in Southeast Asian marine community between AQD and Hokkaido University, the seminar shall be a venue for AQD researchers to report their academic experiences through the program’s study grants and for their supervisors, Professors Katsutoshi Arai and Yasuaki Takagi, to keep the AQD community abreast with environment-friendly aquaculture studies. Moreover, round-table discussions can spark opportunities for future research collaborations.
