The facility has an annual average production of 15 million fry/fingerlings and annual average dispersal of 10 million fry/fingerlings.

With different production and learning areas, the station also serves as a training ground for on-the-job students of fisheries courses. (Photo by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
