About FAC 
 

The Freshwater Aquaculture Center (FAC) is a multi-disciplinary research unit of the University responsible for aquaculture and fisheries research and development. It operates and collaborates very closely with the College of Fisheries with which it shares a common core research staff as well as facilities.

The FAC started in 1972 as a Freshwater Fish Station under the Inland Fisheries Project (IFP), a USAID-supported government project intended to promote the development and utilization of inland freshwater resources of the country for aquaculture. Later in 1976, the Station was institutionalized by CLSU and became known as the Freshwater Aquaculture Center.
