'Gloria' invasion hurting milkfish growers
MetadataShow full item record
A species of tilapia named after former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for being a smaller version of the ordinary tilapia is invading fishponds in Pangasinan province, prompting bangus (milkfish) growers to complain of losses. The species, known as tilapiang “Gloria” and also “molmol” locally, is depriving bangus of food in the ponds, according to Julie Perez, head of Malimgas-Aliguas Dagupan Vendors Federation, a group which includes bangus growers.
