Funding Agency: Centre National de la Reserche Scientifique
Sub contractor: Safe Seaweed Coalition
Project Leader: Michael Y. Roleda, Dr. rer. nat.
Project Duration: January 01, 2023 to January 15, 2024
The main objective of this research project is to restore eucheumatoid productivity and production in the Philippines through the selection of new local strains i.e., safe, and healthy, to limit environmental impacts due to the introduction of non-indigenous genotypes and to prevent risks to disease outbreaks and crop failure due to climate change.
