DA hopes to double shrimp output in 5 years
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Agriculture (DA) hopes to double the country's shrimp production in five years and thus regain its status as a top exporter of Peneaus vannamei of Pacific white shrimp. Agriculture Undersecretary Jesus Emmanuel Paras said the lifting of the ban on the importation and culture of Pacific white shrimp last year as recommended by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) will make this possible. BFAR and the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) under Dr. Joebert Toledo monitor the importation and culture of Pacific white shrimp to ensure that only good-quality and pathogen-free broodstocks are produced in the country.
