Faculty researchers from Mindanao State University at Naawan, Dr. Wilfredo H. Uy, Dr. Annabelle Dece A. Espadero and Dr. Emmylou A. Emperador, attended a project meeting for sea cucumber, specifically on the sandfish, Holothuria scabra at the Research Institute for Aquaculture No. 3 in Nha Trang, Vietnam on November 7 to11, 2022.
The meeting was participated by local project collaborators from University of the Philippines Marine Science Institute (UP MSI), Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Centre Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC AQD), Guiuan Development Foundation Incorporated (GDFI); and partners from RIA 3 of Vietnam, University of Sunshine Coast of Australia, and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR).
The purposes of the said meeting are to review the current project status, and to plan future research activities and collaborations on sea cucumber with both local and international partners to increase technical skills in supporting community-based sea cucumber production in Vietnam and the Philippines.
The trip to Vietnam was an opportunity for the team members to visit the sandfish and teatfish hatchery facilities of RIA 3, including farm visit to local farmers integrating sea cucumber culture with pompano and babylonia snails, and to observe the pond culture of sandfish which will be implemented soon in the University. view gallery
