The Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) is a non-profit organization established by the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) in 1966.
The "new normal" conditions in Southeast Asia compels SEARCA and all of its key partners to initiate anew a paradigm shift towards accelerating transformation through agricultural innovation (ATTAIN).

Agriculture has traditionally been associated with the utilizationof land-based resources. However, large segments of the rural poor in Southeast Asia are dependent on living aquatic resources, whether as consumers; fishers in coastal and inland waters, or fish farmers. Policy research has only recently begun to renew its focus on fisheries, leaving a host of policy issues related to poverty reduction and sustainability relatively unexplored.
