MetadataShow full item record
A fishery expert here said there is an unexplored goldmine in the prawn species locally called ulang that growers must pay attention to as it will bring economic fortune to them when tapped. Dr. Westly Rosario, interim executive director of the National Fisheries Research and Development Institute, told The STAR that in other countries like Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and Thailand, prawn growers who are into the culture of freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii or ulang in the Philippines, are profiting by leaps and bounds. In fact, he said, they have collaborated with Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center in Indonesia and Thailand representatives who said the Philippines could have the best strain of M. rosenbergii, thus the country could have the best breeders.
