BFRDC is located at Lala, Lanao del Norte. From the 28-hectare pond facilities, the Center utilizes more or less 10 hectares for its use. Fifty-six research ponds are now developed and improved to suit farming research activities.

The research center consists of ten rectangular concrete tanks that measure 2 meters by 5 meters by 0.6 meters, as well as twelve circular concrete tanks with a diameter of 2.5 meters and a depth of 0.6 meters. Additionally, there is a wet laboratory building dedicated to breeding research activities, and a small storage area designed to house the necessary inputs for the research projects carried out at the center.

A newly constructed administration building with a floor area of more or less 180 sq. m. was inaugurated on January 30, 2009.
