Said capacity building training is a series of seminars to be held every first two Mondays of the month from June until September of the current year. First session of which was conducted on June 3, 2019 in Tacloban City.

This training aims to enhance the basic knowledge on biology and aquaculture technology of the top priority commodities of the region. Additionally, this learning opportunity will augment the expertise on post-harvest technology and marketing of the agency’s technical force in order to efficiently and effectively provide technical assistance to the Bureau's clients and stakeholders.
