MetadataShow full item record
Asia has maintained its lead position as the world’s top shrimp producer. Thailand continues to dominate the trade, followed by China and Indonesia. From No. 3, the Philippines has nosedived to No. 8. This information on the shrimp industry was presented by aquaculture expert Wilfredo Yap during the Third National Shrimp Congress held recently in Bacolod City. The scientific forum was organized by the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (DA-BFAR), Philippine Shrimp Association (PHILSHRIMP), Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC AQD), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Board of Investment (BOI), and Negros Prawn Producers Marketing Cooperative, Inc.
