This paper describes various types of shrimping and prawning gear and devices, most of which have been traditionally used in the Philippines, with some ecological notes. This study provides basic information on prawn culture and fry collection, which will be useful for private fishpond operators and workers.
The report describes the different gears used for collecting penaeids which have been traditionally used in the Philippines. Twenty gears are presently found throughout the Philippines: nine for collecting sugpo fry and 13 for capturing adult prawns. Thirty-six figures are included in this report. The illustrations were done by Mr. Panfilo Legazpi, Jr., a scientific illustrator at SIA, based on colored photographs and actual observations.
