Gov't sees tripling of shrimp production
MetadataShow full item record
The government estimates that shrimp production in the Philippines will triple by next year once the study on Peneus vannamei (P. vannamei), also known as Pacific White shrimp, becomes successful. The Department of Agriculture (DA) thru its attached agency the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) recently agreed to continue its research and verification studies on P. vannamei to broaden the country's aquaculture base and increase shrimp production. BFAR Director Malcolm Sarmiento said he approved the conduct of another study to determine whether or not P. vannamei is safe to commercially produce here.
