SEAFDEC Igang Marine Station
May 2017 • Business
This marine station is a very good place to visit especially because it is a research center for marine aquaculture. They have different kinds of fishes cultured here like giant grouper, milkfish, seabass, and pompano. You can also have a very fun fish spa with their big milkfish aging over 30 years old. There are many of them in a large cage and they don't have teeth so it's totally fine if they bit your foot or finger.

They also have giant clams. It's amazing to see them clustered in one place but at the same time a bit scary because they're just so big.

The sunset view in this place is very beautiful and it's really quiet during night time.
Coming here is really a great experience!

So Cool
Jun 2017 • Family
All I can say is this was a highlight. Giant grouper that will give a fisherman erotic dreams. All kinds of species including sea turtles. The highlight however has to be putting your feet into the giant Milkfish (Bangus) pen and having them bite your toes. They are toothless. One of the weirdest feeling experiences ever but oh what memorable fun!!!

Staff is fabulous

SEAFDEC is worth visiting!
Nov 2015 • Family
This was part of the itinerary of our Guimaras island-hopping tour. This place is worth visiting especially if you have young children. We really enjoyed exploring the breeding pens. There was a guide who gave us a very educational tour. We got to see a big fish get sedated plus we were able to feed the fishes in the pen.

Guimaras Must-See
Apr 2015
No visit to Guimaras is complete without the island-hopping and checking out this one-of-a-kind marine reserve. One of the best aquatic and fisheries study areas, it's a must-see for kids and adults alike who are no longer aware of the richness of marine life. Drop by SEAFDEC, where saltwater fishes are bred in captivity via the cages; and there are even Giant Clams being cultured, plus one gets to see amazing sea creatures like sea horses, starfish, and turtles.

Last top of our island hopping tour. It was such a good experience being able to learn different sorts of fishes. We also had a chance to feed them and interact with the turtle. Alfred was the name of the turtle and he is so damn cute.

SEAFDEC-Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
Nov 2014 • Friends
The Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center is one of the stops visited if you avail the Guimaras island hopping tour. The research facility educates the public on different species of fishes and other marine life. Most of these fishes farmed here are high value carnivorous fish.

Basically SEAFDEC is a nursery facility that cultures high value fishes. They do fingerling productions of various fishes from Seabass, Groupers or Lapu Lapu, Managat or Snapper and Pompanos or "Jack Fish" and many more.

Surprisingly the tour is very interesting and educational. The tour lasts 30-45 minutes. You will learn a lot of interesting stuff about our marine wildlife and how it is now cultured.

FYI they also has two of the biggest Grouper or Lapu-lapu weighing more than 150kilo each which is a must see.

Underwater World
Oct 2014 • Couples
SEAFDEC at Igang Nueva Valencia should not be confused with Taklong Island National Marine Reserved Area. TINMAR is located at Lapaz Nueva Valencia with an estimated area of 1,143 hectares covering the islands of Taklong and Tandog - including the surrounding islets and water - extending towards Jordan..It is the University of the Philippines Visayas Marine Research Center complete with laboratory, lecture room, and dormitory. The place looks simple with small beach some meters away from the station but it is a true marine paradise for people who love exploring the underwater world.

My fish heaven!
Nov 2014 • Solo
I thought this was going to be a boring part of my island hopping tour. But when I saw how huge the fish were, it really made me very very happy! They had giant groupers, sea basses, pompanos and giant bangus (milkfish)! The SEAFDEC staff was also very willing to explain how they take care of these fishes and how they want to train interested businessmen to earn big profits from cage fishing.
