PH fertile ground for agribusiness
MetadataShow full item record
In a country endowed with 17,460 kilometers of coastline, aquaculture may be fertile ground for businesses both big and small. Still, be it marine-based or land-based, farm activities present opportunities for both producers and buyers. Borromeo said the aquaculture sub-sector was primed to be the biggest source of food fish as output from wild capture fishing has reached a plateau. According to Pafpi, the value of total fisheries production was pegged at P238 billion or $5.8 billion in 2015, with over half of that coming from aquaculture instead of capture or wild fishing.
