The key to a food secure Philippines
MetadataShow full item record
Aquaculture, in particular, can help the country attain fish sufficiency and food security, but there is a dearth of qualified personnel such as aquaculturists who can build and run fish farms. Citing data from the Commission on Higher Education, international research center Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department noted that young Filipinos are not keen on a career in agriculture. SEAFDEC/AQD said there are only 26,259 graduates from the agriculture, forestry, and fisheries disciplines from 2018 to 2019, comprising only 3 percent of all Philippine graduates in higher education.
