Sea bass tapped to stop fish invading 'bangus' ponds
MetadataShow full item record
Government marine experts released 5,000 sea bass fingerlings on Friday into the Watac-Mamalingling River here in an effort to control the growing population of a species of tilapia, locally known as "molmol," that had invaded the city's bangus (milkfish) ponds. Westly Rosario, chief of the National Integrated Fisheries Technology Development Center here, said the sea bass is a natural predator of the invasive tilapia. The fish had also been referred to as “tilapiang Gloria,” after the diminutive former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
