In 2000, refinements of already developed technologies and industry practices were aimed at increasing aquaculture production and decreasing production cost through more innovative approaches like the application of biotechnology, particularly on growth acceleration. Technologies were also verified in actual field conditions as to technical, environmental, and socioeconomic considerations. Those found viable were demonstrated in various sites in collaboration with the Philippine government agencies, local government units, and fishfarmers. On the regional level, and initially in collaboration with the Department of Fisheries of Thailand, AQD conducted verification and demonstration activities in Thailand and Vietnam.
