SEAFDEC/AQD addresses constraints in aquaculture production
MetadataShow full item record
Three major constraints in aquaculture are lack of sufficient fry supply, high cost of feed and skilled manpower to keep aquaculture ventures running. SEAFDEC has been conducting research using indigenous materials that will substitute the expensive and declining supply of fish for fish meal. Result of these studies showed that locally available ingredients as substitute to fish meal yield are comparable if not better in terms of growth and survival than the commercial feeds.
