13 October 2014

ECUADOR - In Papallacta, Napo Province, the Department of Aquaculture and Fisheries, is running the "Mariculture and fish for aquaculture development in Ecuador" project. The purpose is to improve rainbow trout fry through techniques of genetic management.

This work is being done at the Center for Aquaculture Research (CENIAC).

Pilar Proaño Villarreal, Deputy Minister of Aquaculture and Fisheries, toured the center to verify the research work being done in improving the quality of fry.

This work favors the performance of the productive activity of small farmers that supply this season.

Alejandro De la Roche, Secretariat of Aquaculture, said the market has increased its demand for animal protein that contributes to food security and growth of the sector.
