White shrimp testing requires single protocol
MetadataShow full item record
The National Agricultural and Fishery Council (NAFC) has asked the Bureau of Fisheries and Natural Resources (BFAR) and the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center-Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC-AQD) to implement a single protocol for tests on Pacific White Shrimp. A uniform procedure will prevent contradictory results and maintain the integrity of the trials, the NAFC said in a resolution, considering a decision on whether to allow commercialization of the shrimp variety will be based on these tests. "Separate tests conducted by the BFAR and SEAFDEC-AQD used different protocols and produced contradictory results," the NAFC said.
