Proceedings of the National Prawn Industry Development Workshop, 10-13 April 1984, Iloilo City, Philippines.

The book includes industry and review papers discussed during the workshop. These are on seed production, feed development, pond culture, processing and marketing and government policies and financing. The workshop sponsored by AQD, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Philippine Federation of Aquaculturists assessed the progress that has been made by the shrimp industry, ventilated problems, started research and development directions and defined industry goals.

    The paper gave an overview of the status of prawn feed development in the Philippines. Nutrient requirements, diet development, food and feeding habits, diet formulations for prawn (P. monodon) were discussed. Diets for prawn larvae and broodstock were also assessed.

    Seed production and the prawn industry in the Philippines 

    JH Primavera - In Prawn industry development in the Philippines: Proceedings of the National Prawn Industry Development Workshop, 10-13 April 1984, Iloilo City, Philippines, 1984 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
    In any aquaculture system, the major components are seed and feed. The same is true for Penaeus monodon known locally as sugpo, lukon, pansat or by its trade/export name "black tiger". This paper is an attempt to give a state-of-the-art of prawn hatchery technology and wild fry collection in the country, focus on technical and non-technical problems, and offer solutions and policy recommendations.

    The paper described the state-of-the-art in prawn hatchery technology and wild fry collection in the country. The major species for culture emphasized is Penaeus monodon Fabricius locally named as pansat, lukon or sugpo. It is currently the predominant species for pond culture and export. Technical and non-technical problems were brought up and possible solutions recommended. Also provided was an updated list of penaeid prawn hatcheries in the Philippines.

    Pond culture 

    Anon. - In Prawn industry development in the Philippines: Proceedings of the National Prawn Industry Development Workshop, 10-13 April 1984, Iloilo City, Philippines, 1984 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
    The paper discussed the extensive and semi-intensive methods of prawn culture. It reviewed the history of pond cultivation of Penaeus monodon during the last three decades and the major contributions to its culture, cultivation and production in the Philippines. It also touched on the market demand from Japan which at present is the main importer of Philippine prawns. The major discussion however dealt on the extensive and semi-intensive culture methods, the former being widely practised by prawn farmers and the latter being the most viable and more easily adaptable method for culture in ponds. Although the old practice of direct stocking of fry in grow-out ponds is convenient, it gives unreliable fry survival rates. Thus, the nursery system has been devised to improve fry survival. The different nursery systems were discussed in detail as intermediate holding systems of wild or hatchery-bred fry . The factors that affect prawn production in grow-out ponds were discussed for both extensive and semi-intensive culture methods.

    Processing/marketing

    The paper presented a comprehensive coverage of the processing and marketing of prawns for export as practised by AA Eximco, a firm based in Roxas City.

    Philippine export of Penaeus monodon in 1983 was estimated at 4,450 MT of which 2,000 MT was caught in the fishing waters and about 2,450 MT produced from aquaculture. These are mostly exported to Japan and the United States in processed and quick-frozen form.

    The paper discussed briefly Philippine Government policies on aquaculture. It emphasized the value of conservation to promote ecological stability of our natural resources. Mentioned were the steps the government has done to conserve local stock of prawn spawners, particularly the issuance and implementation of Fishery Administrative Order 143 which provides for the total ban on the export of all live stages of the tiger prawn.

    Status of prawn (Penaeus monodon) feed development in the Philippines 

    F Piedad-Pascual - In Prawn industry development in the Philippines: Proceedings of the National Prawn Industry Development Workshop, 10-13 April 1984, Iloilo City, Philippines, 1984 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
    Approximately a decade ago the culture of sugpo or tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon) was in its infancy. Prawns were stock alone together with milkfish and fed mainly on natural food present in ponds. High market prices, increase consumer demand, and availability of seeds through artificial propagationin the last six years have brought about a shift towards more intesive culture of prawns. With the advent of the monoculture and more intensive farming of sugpo has come a greater demand for an external source of food because natural food organism in the ponds would no longer suffice to meet the dietary requirements of the prawns.

    The intensive culture of prawns requires knoledge of their nutrient requirements in order to provide adecquate food for growth and survival. Knowledge of their feeding habits is important particilarly in feed developmemt. Prawn culturists and nutritionists are faced not only with problems of nutritional requirements but also practical consideration such as physical feature of the diet, methods and frequency of feeding, feeding behavior and feeding preferences at varios stage of the life cycle,effects of the food on water quality, amount of feed and types of facilities appropriate for culture.
