Fish farming pushed as important alternative

Instead of importing “galunggong” (round scad), the country should boost fish farming, given that it can generate fish all year round, a former director of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources said. Malcolm Sarmiento said China might have the technology, but its production time was only one-half year, while the Philippines could continue generating fish for the whole year because of the climate.“The Philippines is one of the countries with great potential for fish farming. We don’t have the four seasons, like China,” Sarmiento said.
