Researches on the intensification of culture techniques and practices are conducted prior to technology dissemination. Techno-demo on fish culture in concrete tanks and plastic drums utilizing high value species is targeted as an alternative livelihood for family/fisherfolk.

More recently, the intensive tank culture system has sparked interest in aquaculture among businessmen. Meanwhile plastic drums culture system as a backyard fish farming activity has been adopted by the local government units in urban areas.
