The shrimp farming industry in the Philippines
MetadataShow full item record
The shrimp farming industry in the Philippines is the culture of shrimp (Penaeus monodon) in brackishwater and seawater grow-out farms to marketable size. The industry is highly dependent upon the other sectors/components of the shrimp culture industry, including:
- the shrimp hatcheries for their supply of fry (PLs);
- the feed millers for their supply of commercial pelletized feeds, primarily for semi-intensive and intensive shrimp farms;
- the shrimp processors/exporters for the purchase of their harvests;
- the financial institutions for their capital and operational costs; and
- the research institutions and the government for solutions to technical and other problems.
