MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Agriculture (DA) is optimistic that domestic shrimp production will double in the next five years and that the Philippines will regain its status as one of the world's top exporters of shrimp. Agriculture Undersecretary Jesus Emmanuel Paras said the move by Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap last year to lift the ban on the importation and culture of Pacific white shrimp into the country has resulted in a speedy rebound by the country's shrimp industry. The importation and culture of Pacific white shrimp is strictly monitored by Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) together with the Southeast Asia Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC).
