MetadataShow full item record
The Agriculture Department said on Monday it will help local growers make the country's eel industry competitive and tap the export market. Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala said he recently met with domestic players to discuss initial plans on how to develop the glass eel industry amid the dwindling supply of Anguilla japonica, the preferred eel variety in Japan and South Korea. Eel growers who attended the meeting said the country could grow glass eels year-round, unlike in temperate countries.
