Survival rate of mangrove crab
MetadataShow full item record
A relatively new technology is now in place which aims to increase the survival rate of mangrove crab in the hatchery. Originally engaged in producing and culturing high-value marine aquatic species, the Palawan Aquaculture Corporation (PAC) based in Baguid, Coron, Palawan, is now adopting the mangrove crab hatchery technology. The technology was developed by the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center - Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC/AQD). The initial trials on larval rearing of mangrove crab which was conducted of the PAC in 2013 produced only minimal quantity of crablets.
