Fish culture in homes advocated
MetadataShow full item record
A fisheries expert trained at the University of the Philippines (UP) is pushing for household fish culture that involves rearing of red tilapia fry to fingerlings for only 30 days and guarantees grower a P1,000 per tank net income monthly. Virgilio B. Marzo has developed his own version of fish culture system using tanks which can be adopted at a household level. Although the technology on tank culture is not new, Marzo stressed that previous attempts to popularize it in the urban areas failed due to high production cost, mainly electric consumption. Other contributing factors are the use of substandard quality of feeds and the lack of technical know-how on the physiology of the fish species being grown. Marzo said that his system doesn't require a big space in order to set up. One can have a start-up set, which includes two drums with metal stand and an aerator, for a cost of P5,000.
