Philippines

Shrimp School

 

Dr. Westly Rosario (westlyrosario@ymail.com) with the Philippine Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in Dagupan City, reports:

 

BFAR plans to open a shrimp school for 20-to-30-year-old students at the Asian Fisheries Academy, which is inside the sprawling BFAR center in Barangay Bonuan Binloc.  It will be the first school of its kind in the Philippines and concentrate on Penaeus vannamei farming technologies.  Enrollees must have a high school degree or technical training in fisheries.  There will be ten students in each class and the training will last for 90 days.  Once the project becomes successful, Filipinos will outnumber shrimp farmers from China and Taiwan, who have become the primary producers of farmed shrimp in the country.
