The CLSU/ICLARM Integrated Animal-Fish Farming Project at Central Luzon State University, Nueva Ecija, Philippines, is approaching the end of its third year.

The project's objectives are to develop economically viable animal-fish systems suitable for the Philippines and to identify and quantify the system dynamics.
