Sea cucumber potential 'gold' for fish farmers
MetadataShow full item record
At the price of $180 to $250 per kilogram (P12,000 per kg) of dried sea cucumber in the United States, sea cucumber is a good bet for Ilonggo fish farmers wanting to find the new "gold" in aquaculture. This has driven the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) Aquaculture Department, the research center based in Iloilo, to develop the hatchery, nursery and grow-out technologies of the sea cucumber Holothuria scabra so that overexploitation of the wild fisheries on which the sea cucumber trade depends will case or be minimized.
