Project Name: Oyster Cultivation Development Project (Ecuador)
Project Description: In order to promote diversification of aquaculture development, authorities in Santa Elena proposed this project establishing breeding area to cultivate local shellfish, fish and crustaceans, specifically aimed to oyster, whose fry is not easy to obtain. National Aquaculture and Marine Research Center (CENAIM), which is affiliated to the college of Litoral Polytechnic College (Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral, ESPOL), is the only institute possessing oyster fry cultivation capacity, although its production capacity and techniques need to improve. Progressively, the industry will take shape by tutoring piscatory including technique training, post-harvest treatment demonstration and marketing activities.
