Growing fillet fish-size tilapia in earthen pond

Tilapia is the second most important cultured fish species next to milkfish. Fish fillet promises a great market potential for tilapia growers.

It’s a value-added product and has the potential as dollar earning industry in the international market. A technology demonstration was conducted wherein tilapia was grown in earthen ponds to fillet size, about 500-650 gram average weight.

According to Ms. Zafra of BFAR, although market acceptance for tilapia in Visayas and Mindanao is not so great as compared to Central Luzon, tilapia raisers could look at it as an opportunity to grow more tilapia.

Providing the welcome address during the technology forum was BAR Asst. Dir. Teodoro S. Solsoloy. Meanwhile, NTCP Overall Coordinator and TCU Head Marlowe Aquino explained the objectives and rationale for the techno forum.

The recently concluded National Agriculture and Fisheries Technology Forum is the first of a series lined-up for this year and fourth since its inception in 2005.
