More than 60% of the participants came from the sector of the producers, 20% from government offices and agencies while seven percent came from the academe. More details on the Aquaculture Workshop will be available for download in pdf format.
A new species of mudworm, known to clean the soil in fishponds and an excellent source of protein for crustaceans, was recently identified and named after Iloilo, the province where its eggs were collected and hatched.
