Ramos, Paniqui fish farmers learn polyculture

PANIQUI, Tarlac (May 1, 2023) — Some 40 fish farmers from this first-class municipality and neighboring Ramos town are currently participating in the season-long Fish Farmers Field School that will teach them actual procedures on freshwater polyculture technology.

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources in Central Luzon (BFAR-3) is promoting freshwater polyculture technology to boost the fishery industry in Region 3.

“Layunin ng BFAR, sa pamamagitan ng FFS, na ituro sa mga mangingisda ang pinakabagong teknolohiya na magpapaunlad sa kanilang operasyon at kabuhayan bilang mga magsasaka ng isda,” BFAR-3 Regional Director Wilfredo Cruz said.

Using freshwater polyculture technology, the BFAR-3 program teaches procedures for growing tilapia and prawns in a single pond.

Polyculture is the practice of culturing more than one species of aquatic organism in the same pond with the objective of producing multiple products that have economic value.
