Traditional devices and gear for collecting fry of "sugpo" giant tiger prawn, Penaeus monodon in the Philippines
MetadataShow full item record
Eight typical devices and gears for catching the wild fry of the giant tiger prawn, Penaeus monodon, locally called sugpo are described and illustrated. There are three stationary ones vis. fry lure, fry filter net and set fry trap, and five mobile ones viz. scoop net, fry scare line, fry seine, triangular net, and fry bulldozer. These have been used traditionally in the Philippines. This design and manner of operation are adapted to the behaviors and habits of the sugpo fry such as clinging and incursion with the incoming tidal current in mangrove creeks or at the mouth of the brackish river.
