The Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) said it will train aquaculture farmers starting this week to build up milkfish and white shrimp output, with a target of 10,000 offshore fish cages within two years. Secretary Emmanuel F. Piñol, the MinDA chairman, said the Fish Cage Development Program targets production of about 200,000 metric tons of milkfish a year, “which will infuse an estimated P26-B into Mindanao’s economy and provide thousands of jobs.”
