Activity/inputs Duration Remarks

Activity 1: Genetic improvement of commercially important species and development of hatchery technology

Sub-activity 1.1: Selective breeding of mud crab Scylla serrata

The response of crabs to selection on growth and disease resistance will be evaluated. Reciprocal matings will be done and the performance of the succeeding generations will be compared with the previous generations. Paper on the criteria for selection of good quality larvae for stocking in the hatchery will be submitted for publication.

Activity/inputs Duration Remarks

Sub-activity 1.2: Selective breeding of black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon Further growing of F2 to broodstock size will be done. Regular monitoring through monthly samplings will be done. Heritability of growth in the families will be determined using body weight data that have been collected. Once the F2 females have attained broodstock size, these will be stocked with males of other F2 families and the reproductive performance noted. Final analysis of all data that have been gathered will be done. Families with better performance in terms of postlarval survival, growth rate, and reproductive performance will be identified.

Sub-activity 1.3: Genetic improvement of giant freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii

After the growth experiment, same-aged breeders shall be selected from the stocks and subsequently used for the breeding experiments as planned, using the most effective broodstock management scheme.

Sub-activity 1.4: Mass production of plantlets with improved traits (This sub-activity was terminated at the end of 2011.) Sub-activity 1.5: Development of hatchery techniques of Pompano and

Spotted Scat

Experiments to improve growth and survival of spotted scat Scatophagus argus larvae will be done. Articles on experiments done on Pompano will be published.

Activity 2: Development of environment-friendly feeds using regionally available ingredients

Sub-activity 2.1: Development of efficient and low-pollution diets for grow- out and broodstock (freshwater prawn, milkfish, grouper, mud crab, and black tiger shrimp)

Feeding trials of giant freshwater prawn from a different source grown to broodstock size will be done. The effect of broodstock diets on the reproductive performance and larval production will be evaluated. Review of published information on fishmeal replacement by plant-based protein sources in feeds for other species will be continued.

Sub-activity 2.2: Establishment of guidelines for optimum feeding management through survey of availability and quality assessment of feed resources

(This sub-activity was terminated at the end of 2012.) Activity 3: Establishment of managing technology of aquaculture


Refinement of the designed management scheme will be done using ponds at UPV-BAC or in collaboration with private shrimp farmers. Aquasilviculture of P. monodon will be repeated if budget permits.

Activity 4: Socioeconomic assessment and impact analysis of transfer and adoption of sustainable aquaculture technologies

(This sub-activity was terminated at the end of 2012.) Activity 5: Technology extension and demonstration

Sub-activity 5.1: Giant freshwater prawn production training program (No activity scheduled in 2014)

Sub-activity 5.2: Regional dissemination of mud crab farming program (No activity scheduled in 2014)

Sub-activity 5.3: Regional dissemination of black tiger shrimp farming program

(No activity scheduled in 2014) Sub-activity 5.4: Marine fish hatchery training program

The International Training Course on Marine Fish Hatchery will beoffered to transfer and to disseminate improved technologies for broodstock management, seed production and grow-out culture of marine fishes such as milkfish (Chanos chanos), Asian sea bass (Lates calcarifer), groupers (Epinephelus coioides, E. fuscoguttatus), mangrove red snapper (Lutjanus argentimaculatus), rabbitfish (Siganus guttatus), or pompano (Trachinotus blochii) to various stakeholders: hatchery owners, technicians, extension workers and aquaculturists. Special topics on biotechnology; fish cage design and culture; and food safety and processing of highly-valued marine fishes could be included. Field trips to private farms and AQD stations will also be included to reinforce learning.

Sub-activity 5.5: Abalone hatchery training program

This training course aims to provide participants with technical knowledge and skills to operate a hatchery and to manage a grow-out culture of abalone.

The course will cover an introduction on sustainable aquaculture; abalone biology and reproduction; broodstock management and spawning; larval rearing and grow-out techniques; hatchery design and construction; feeding of abalone; culture of benthic diatoms; biology and culture of Gracilaria; feed formulation, processing and preparation; financial feasibility and market potential; food safety in abalone production and processing. Special topics on stock enhancement and industry experience on commercial hatchery and grow-out of abalone will also be included. The incorporation of site visits to private abalone hatchery, seaweed farm and AQD stations will also be done.

Sub-activity 5.6: Seaweed farming training program

(Because of constraint of budget, this training course schedule in 2014 will be cancelled.)

Sub-activity 5.7: On-line course on nutrition and on-site feed preparation training program

The on-site training on feed preparation and feeding management is slated to be conducted in Lao PDR in late 2014. Arrangements will be made in coordination with appropriate government agencies in Lao PDR.

Arrangements will be made in coordination with appropriate government agencies in Lao PDR.

Sub-activity 5.8: Rural aquaculture program

The 10-day course aims to enhance the knowledge and skills of the participants on appropriate and suitable freshwater aquaculture methods and practices so that they would be able to transfer and promote these technologies to rural communities for livelihood and poverty alleviation. The course is designed for fisheries/ aquaculture extension officers and those working at the rural fishery communities. The course will include lectures on various freshwater species such as tilapia, carp, catfish, freshwater prawn. Other than the lectures and practical sessions, the participants could also share with co- participants and resource persons their experiences on freshwater aquaculture practices and extension works through power point presentation/ reports.

Activity 6: Publication

Manuals, posters, pamphlets and flyer describing the sustainable aquaculture will be published and distributed.

Activity 7: Annual progress meeting and international workshop Sub-activity 7.1: Annual progress meeting

Annual progress meeting will be held to review the project achievement.

Evaluators will be invited to join the meeting to review/evaluate the project achievements.

Sub-activity 7.2: International workshop

Although initially scheduled in 2013, it was postponed in the first quarter of 2014 in the form of a joint workshop with those on Resource Enhancement due to the constraint of budget. New information on sustainable and region- oriented aquaculture practices will be presented and discussed by participants from ASEAN Member Countries, resource persons as well as study leaders in this project. Emerging problems that require urgent solutions will also be discussed to pave the way to promote and to assure sustainable aquaculture in the Southeast Asian region.

Activity 8: Coordination by the project leader

The project leader will coordinate and assist the research, training and dissemination, and also facilitate information exchange not only domestically but also among Member Countries so that sustainable aquaculture practices will be effectively promoted in Southeast Asia. Semi-annual meeting will be held on July or August to confirm the progress of respective activities and sub-activities. Project achievements will be summarized at the end of year.
