DOST-11 gives update on seaweeds farming

Davao City (3 December) -- The Philippines is a leading supplier of Euchema, according for about 80% of the total world supply, and Mindanao remains to be the country's leading seaweed producer. In Western Mindanao, the seaweed industry is a source of livelihood for more than 500,000 farmers. In terms of the market, Europe is the largest market for dried seaweeds.

It is in this regard that the Department of Science and Technology in Region-XI in cooperation with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR-XI), Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP-XI), SPAMAST & LGUs, held a training and seminar on seaweed farming last November 16-17, 2005 at the DCWD Regional Training Center Davao City. The activity aimed to provide the peoples' organization, LGU technicians and other seaweed stakeholders with the latest updates on seaweed technology and market prospects, in order to improved the farmer's productivity and income.

The activity was successful and well attended with fifty-one (51) participants coming from various areas in the region. The activity was also a venue to support the ongoing validation of the Technology on Improved Seaweed's Productivity under the Technology Innovation Promotion and Commercialization Program (TIPCP), a joint project among LBP-XI, DOST XI and four (4) state universities and colleges (SUCs) in the region. The seminar also allowed the seaweed stakeholders in the region to meet and discuss matters about seaweed farming. (DOST XI) [top]
