DA sets aside ₱15M for abalone sector
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Agriculture has allocated P15 million for the further development of the local abalone industry, in a bid to take advantage of growing demand for the product abroad. Agriculture Secretary Arthur C. Yap said investing in the five-year National Abalone Breeding and Culture program was "well worth it" as it is expected to produce more than 1000,000 kilos in the first alone with six abalone hatcheries and six grow-out farms. The Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center and the Bureau of Fisheries and Agriculture Research, which would spearhead the program, are eyeing six possible sites for the abalone hatcheries and grow-out sea cage farms.
