No longer windswept!

“Much has been said on the generosity and assistance given by JIRCAS to SEAFDEC/AQD and we are thankful for yet another project,” research division head Dr. Junemie Lebata-Ramos said as she welcomed guests for the inauguration of the mini wet laboratory building at Igang Marine Station  (IMS), Guimaras, Iloilo on 10 October 2013. The wet lab was co-funded by JIRCAS (Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences) with AQD.

The mini wet laboratory can help AQD researchers perform experiments in a more conducive space. “I learned that researchers do sampling in the dining hall [of IMS] to avoid strong winds,” said Dr. Masayoshi Saito, JIRCAS program director. JIRCAS and AQD also collaborated on an IMTA (Integrated multi-trophic aquaculture) facility that was inaugurated 12 October of last year. Both projects were initiated by AQD visiting scientist Dr. Satoshi Watanabe.

Scientists have found out that these stable isotopes interact differently with the environment compared to the same atoms of normal weight. This finding has led to methods involving isotopes that let us know details about what an organism eats.
