Tobacco dust good for aquaculture
MetadataShow full item record
National Tobacco Administration (NTA) Chief Edgardo D. Zaragoza yesterday said research undertaken by the agency showed that tobacco dust battles not only head lice but also decimates snails that inhabit fishponds and fish cages. As a molluscicide, Zaragoza said, tobacco dust acts swiftly to protect milkfish and its eggs from predator snails and other creatures that exist in ponds and fish pens. Its efficacy has been proven by studies conducted by a team from Southeast Asian Fissheries Development Center (Seafdec) in Tigbauan, Iloilo under Dr. Joebert D. Toledo, the NTA chief added.
