MetadataShow full item record
The government is looking at formulating an eel commodity roadmap to take advantage of the rising global demand for eels, Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala said Tuesday. “Eels, or igat as they are more known locally, have huge market potential in the global scene. This is an opportunity that entrepreneurs in the country must look into and take advantage of,” said Alcala. BFAR director Asis Perez said aside from the formulation of the eel commodity roadmap, the government also aimed to ensure that Fisheries Administrative Order 242 s. 2012, which reinstated the ban on the export of elvers or eel fry would be implemented.
