dc.descriptionWith the aim to provide updated technology for milkfish production, the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-PCAARRD) published a new edition of The Philippines Recommends (PR) for Milkfish, which was first published in 1983. Written by experts on aquaculture from Santeh Aquaculture Science and Technology Foundation, Inc., University of the Philippines (UP) Visayas-College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center-Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC-AQD), and UP Los Baños-College of Economics and Management, the book consists of up-to-date material on milkfish production from fry and fingerling production, grow-out culture, up to postharvest handling and processing. It also tackles pond and cage culture in detail and marketing and cost and return analysis in milkfish production. The PR for Milkfish 2016 includes information from PCAARRD-funded National Milkfish R&D Program. The book hopes to lessen the country’s dependence on imported fry as it encourages sufficient investment in hatcheries and active participation of smallholders in larval rearing and fry production.en
