The Department of Agriculture’s (DA) Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) has successfully conducted the first trial run of its second tilapia intensive hatchery in the CALABARZON region, a development that will help boost the productivity of tilapia farmers. Located in Los Baños, Laguna, the hatchery recorded a high hatching rate of 95 percent, which means a high number also of fry produced. At present, the hatchery has six fry trough and hatching jars, and can produce 300,000 fry in just three to five days. Following the successful trial run, the hatchery now aims to complete four rounds of hatching per month, BFAR said.
