MetadataShow full item record
Increasing fish production through polyculture was clearly demonstrated to the fishfarmers in Laguna lake. The rearing of different species of fish of proper number and species combinations had resulted to the efficient utilization of all the available food niches/zones in the lake. Fish production is site specific in Laguna lake. Wide variation in growth increment and fish yield were observed among the different bays and among farm sited within a bay. The final mean weights of the fish species were 355 mg to 2300 g for bighead carp, 32 g to 103.3 g for tilapia and 8.3 g to 1800 g for common carp.
