Conference paperS Pawiro - In LMB Garcia (Ed.), Responsible Aquaculture Development in Southeast Asia. Proceedings of the Seminar-Workshop on Aquaculture Development … Southeast Asia organized by the SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department, 12-14 October 1999, Iloilo City, Philippines, 2001 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development CenterDespite the fact that Southeast Asian countries are among the main producers and exporters of fish and fishery products in the world, the region has also increasingly become an important market. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), imports of fish and fishery products into countries comprising the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) increased from only US$471 million in 1984 to more than US$2 billion in 1997. High per capita fish consumption, huge market size (population), increasingly strong purchasing power, coupled with relatively liberal trade policies are among the factors behind this trend. Even though the economic crisis in the region has scaled down the degree of market expansion for the last two years, it has, on the other hand, provided trade opportunities among the regional countries for fishery products, including those from aquaculture. Ten species are being cultured commercialIy in the region, but only a few are important in the intra-regional trade. Shrimp, particularly black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon), is the most important species being cultured and traded in the region, both in terms of volume and value. The other major species are carps, tilapia, and milkfish, but these are mostly consumed locally and only a limited quantity is traded between countries in the region. Meanwhile, cultured Asian sea bass, grouper, snappers and mud crab are relatively small in production, but these are important species in the intraregional trade. This paper reviews the current trends in Southeast/Far East Asian markets for major aquaculture products, including marketing issues on demand and product trends, safety and quaIity issues as well as marketing access in major Asian markets.
Book chapterCL Marte - In IC Liao & EM Leaño (Eds.), Milkfish aquaculture in Asia, 2010 - National Taiwan University; The Fisheries Society of Taiwan; Asian Fisheries Society; World Aquaculture SocietyMilkfish farming has been, and will remain the backbone of Philippine aquaculture. To date, over 260,000 ha of brackishwater ponds, 6, 700 ha of freshwater pens and about 500 ha of marine pens and cages are used to culture this fish. Average milkfish annual production since 1990 is 206,840 mt valued at over ten billion pesos. Annual per capita consumption of milkfish is about 2 kg or 7. 5 % of the total fish (26. 8 kg/per capita) consumed by every Filipino. By the year 2020, the population is predicted to reach 112 million and will require 224,000 mt of milkfish. If production growth rate is maintained at 2.3%, an estimated 400,000 mt will be produced by the year 2020 generating surplus production of close to 200,000 mt. The development of value-added products from the surplus produce will be needed to enhance acceptability of milkfish in the export market and the changing food preference of younger generations. This paper presents a brief overview of the current status of the milkfish industry in the Philippines. Details of, breeding and hatchery technologies, farming systems, marketing, value-added products and research and development are in the various chapters of this book.
