Under the auspices of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center/Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC/AQD), a National Consultative Meeting on Aquaculture Engineering was held at the Tigbauan Research Station of the SEAFDEC/AQD on 2–5 October 1985. This was part of the continuing collaboration between the FAO/UNDP South China Sea Fisheries Development and Coordinating Programme (SCSP) and SEAFDEC.

Since 1985, the FAO/UNDP-SCSP terminated and its continuing activities were taken over, in part, by the ASEAN/UNDP/FAO Regional Small-Scale Coastal Fisheries Development Project. As its part in this collaborative effort with SEAFDEC/AQD, the report on the meeting is being published by this Project so that it can be disseminated to participants and the Fisheries Departments and other interested parties in the participating countries. Although this was started as a national activity, examination of the papers showed that the subjects taken up are of general and regional interest. It is hoped that this report can serve a useful purpose in the participating countries and likewise stimulate similar activity in the future.

This Project is grateful to SEAFDEC/AQD for supporting the holding of the Meeting and for cooperating in the compilation of this report so that it can be prepared for publication. Dr. H. R. Rabanal, consultant for this Project assisted in editing this report.
