Sci-Art AquaWeek 2013

Sci-Art AquaWeek 2013
22–26 July 2013
SEAFDEC / AQD’s 40th Anniversary, AQD Museum’s Year 20, FishWorld’s Year 13

The SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department supports responsible aquaculture and sustainable development in the Philippines and Southeast Asia.  SEAFDEC FishWorld is dedicated to science and environment education of the general public—children, adults, students, teachers, researchers, public officials, tourists, local residents, etc.— particularly about aquatic ecosystems and biodiversity, aquaculture and fisheries, conservation, and the aquatic sciences.

Sci-Art AquaWeek seeks to build understanding and appreciation among school children and teachers in Panay of the research and development work of SEAFDEC AQD and the relations between aquatic biodiversity, aquaculture, fisheries, and human nutrition. The understanding is then expressed through contests with various outputs.  Sci-Art AquaWeek 2013 focuses on (1) public awareness of SEAFDEC/AQD’s R&D of the past 40 years, and (2) the importance of marine biodiversity to food security, and (2).  Five contests are open to all high schools, and four contests to all elementary schools.  There is no registration fee.
