MetadataShow full item record
A new shrimp production technology holds a great promise of reviving the country's moribund prawn industry. Called close recirculating system, the technology has been verified and found highly successful by the Tigbauan, Iloilo-based Southeast Aian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDECAQD). The trials or production runs were conducted over the past many months at the SEAFDEC AQD Dumangs Brackishwater Station (DBS) situated in this town 20 kilometers north of Iloilo City.
