Local shrimp industry seen to regain strength
MetadataShow full item record
Close to a thousand shrimp growers in the country met recently in Bacolod City and agreed to join hands in solving the problems besetting the shrimp industry. In a display of oneness, they hammered out seven urgent resolutions which they considered urgent and necessary to save the moribund shrimp industry during the Third National Shrimp Congress in Bacolod City last July 1-4. In the 1980s, shrimp production emerged as "sunshine" industry following breakthroughs in research, induced spawning, shrimp seed production in the nursery, and the completion of the life cycle of the tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon) in captivity.
