Taiwan Aquaculture Trade Mission to the Philippines

Laguna Lake Development Authority General Manager Jaime Medina and Assistant General Manager Gener Dungo met with the delegates from the Taiwan Trade Center at the Aquaculture Trade Mission last September 27.

At the trade mission, General Manager Medina attended several meetings with Taiwanese executives, who shared the best practices and newest innovations in aquaculture technology – one of which was the new Skid Guard Stanchions.

The Skid Guard Stanchions are the successors of the standard Double-Walled Neck Stanchions and the Balanced Stanchions, which are typhoon-ready cages that are built to weather the toughest storms. These are seen to be greatly benefit the fisherfolk of Laguna de Bay.

Attending the meetings as well were Shanyi Hsu, Taiwan External Trade Development Council Project Manager; Patty Yen, Taiwan External Trade Development Council Deputy Executive Director; Charles Shieh-Yueh Yang, Taiwan/MagQu Co. Ltd. President; James C.F. Huang, Taitra Chairman; and Atty. Malou Remular, Laguna Lake Development Authority Enforcement Chief. Fishpen operators - Emelito Felix and husband and wife, Mutya and Jovert Aralar - also joined the afternoon discussion.
