Raising ulang in fish cages
MetadataShow full item record
It is now feasible to raise ulang (giant freshwater prawn) in fish cages in lakes. The technology was developed and continues to be refined under a collaborative project on the development of a genetically improved strain of this shrimp species scientifically named Microbrachium rosenbergii. The project is being implemented in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Thailand. From 2003-2005, it was part of an ASEAN-SEAFDEC (Association of Southeast Asian Nations-Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center) Special Five-Year Program on Sustainable Fisheries for Food Security in the Region.
