Philippine shrimp industry's economic potential
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Agriculture (DA) is conducting a crash program for the shrimp sector so it can start to again export this year amid a strong global demand. There is a something market demand for vannamei (white shrimp) and monodon (tigershrimp) in Japan, Hongkong, Singapore and United Sates of America. The Philippine black tiger shrimp has a high-value export niche as neighboring Asian countries find it more difficult to grow.
