Shrimp aquaculture: the Philippine experience
MetadataShow full item record
An overview is presented of the shrimp farming industry in the Philippines, noting that it was established as brackish-water aquaculture as early as 1521, although it took until the 1970s to take off, blooming during the 1980s, and then stagnating and even declining during the 1990s. Issues discussed are: a brief status of the shrimp aquaculture industry (farm production and exports; hatcheries, processors and feed mills); current key constraints (technical constraints to fry production; technical constraints to the grow-out operation; environmental constraints; social constraints; economic constraints; and political and administrative constraints); and research activities and priorities for future research.
