Philippines – Arts & Crafts in Aquarium Trade
Poseidon Sciences integrates with the communities where it has commercial presence by indentifying livelihood technologies for coastal and inland communities near each of our stations. Such development program is administered through Poseidon Science Foundation and other marketing/technical partners.
In the Philippines, a new program was developed through a year of testing to create an artistic, decorative covers for the aquarium hobby industry. In developed countries, the aquarium hobby industry is a US $ 2 billion market comprising of ornamental fish, tanks, equipment and ancillary equipment and services. The majority of the aquarium tanks used, particularly by beginners, is the 10 gallon glass tank, equipped with lights and cover.
The success of such an endeavor involves both a high quality workmanship, reasonable cost and marketing of the final commercial products worldwide. It is a process that takes time and resources. However, if successfully implemented, this project can eventually employ hundreds of coastal fisher folks and artisans within the local community.
