Three courses on freshwater commodities @ BFS

By Development Communication Section

Training courses on seed production and culture of giant freshwater prawn (4-8 March), tilapia (12-16 March) and catfish (1-5 April) were conducted at the AQD’s Binangonan Freshwater Station in Rizal.

A total of 15 participants (five in each course) completed the three courses. They had lectures on the biology & sustainable management of farmed commodities and aquaculture economics. Also, hands-on practical sessions were done to give the trainees an actual experience in fish farming operations.

These are the first three training courses of AQD for 2013. For more information on the upcoming training courses, go to http://www.seafdec.org.ph/2013/2013-training-schedule/
