Feed made from microalgae to raise aquaculture production
MetadataShow full item record
A feed for aquaculture, microalgae, is eyed as both a highly nutritional and environment-friendly feed that can enhance aquaculture production, a sector that accounts for some ₱20 billion in Philippines' gross value added(GVA). Microalgal pastes are now being piloted for production at the University of the Philippines Visayas(UPV) to support the aquaculture sector's huge feed requirement. Feeds may account for as much as 50 percent of fishery production cost.
