PRIMEX and Western Philippines University, with participation from LGU Taytay and its MFARMC/fishermen's federation recently conducted a 3 day seminar/workshop on how to transplant, care, and grow live corals taken from damaged coral reefs or from areas near where intact coral colonies thrive. It also included the collection and tagging of giant clam juveniles and putting them in a common site for easier and proper monitoring and care. It was a truly successful activity, in that, more than 200 clams and 2000 coral seedlings were finally gathered and securely placed on underwater seedling trays / beds where they will be left and cared for until they are ready to be transferred or transplanted about 6 months later. Future plans include opening the underwater farm sites to visitors where they would also have the chance to participate in farming activities
