Creativity and Greener Production in the Seventh Philippine Shrimp Congress

Shrimps are one, if not the most sought after crop in Philippine aquatic culture, despite difficulties in its cultivation. Shrimps have always been a prized gourmet food for Filipinos and also generates a sizeable economic income. Its cultivation is an age old tradition and regarded as an art that has brought pride to farmers.

Armed with this knowledge, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) organized the Seventh Philippine Shrimp Congress at the Planta Hotel in Bacolod City last March 17–19.

Themed “Greener Production Technologies and Creative Marketing,” the three-day biannual conference and trade fair drew around 500 participants who are also practitioners of the industries of grow-out farming, hatchery operation, feed milling, processing/exporting, and input supplies.
