Abstract or Summary
  • The estuaries and coastal waters of Northern Samar are characterized by an abundance of mud crab juveniles (Scylla serrata). These, however, are being overexploited by mud crab collectors with backing from financiers in other islands to the disadvantage of coastal poor producers. The SEAFDEC/AQD technology transfer of mud crab nursery rearing in ponds through its season-long training under the Institutional Capacity Development on Sustainable Aquaculture (ICD-SA) undertaken in Northern Samar adds value to the juveniles and may mitigate the illegal transport of small crabs to other islands. This paper examines the effectiveness of the techno-transfer mechanisms and the socio-economic implications on 60 small-scale mud crab producers randomly selected in four study sites at Northern Samar. Results indicated that the technology demonstration is a viable enterprise for it can provide additional income of about PhP 14,318 in six months in a 200 m2 pond. The majority (83%) of producer-respondents showed interest in adopting the technology.
