Refinement of mussel transplantation techniques for developing mussel farming in Quezon

One of the areas of intervention under the PCAARRD Mussel S&T Program roadmap is the refinement of the mussel transplantation protocol to aid area expansion. Though the ongoing projects had addressed this concern, it had left some research gaps that this project aims to address. This project will refine the developed protocol and enhance spat production and broodstock survival.
