New Catfish (hito) Variety in General Santos City
« on: October 11, 2008, 03:12:53 pm »
Production of a new catfish (hito) variety has gained ground in General Santos City in a bid to produce stable domestic supply of the product now being touted as the "next generation fish" in the country.

This new catfish variety is called Pangasius, also known as sutchi catfish or striped catfish.

The most common varieties being grown in the country are African and native catfishes.

In an interview, Rochelle A. Otoc, industry development officer for the local Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), said the country is importing 500 metric tons of Pangasius fillet from Vietnam used by restaurants and fast food chains.

"Based on consultations with fish pond owners in the region, they can easily provide the 30 hectares initially targeted for the commercial production of Pangasius catfish in the area," Otoc said. - Sun Star Daily

"That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved."

one thing that bohol has not been doing anything about is the production of fresh water fish as alternative to marine fish. obviously the so-called fishery experts in bohol have not been able to grasp the fact that overfishing and the use of illegal fishing means will forever continue, despite the bantay dagat which does not have enough gasoline to patrol the seas anyway, until fisherfolks are given alternative sources of livelihood... on the other hand, demand for fish products can be met through commercial production of fresh water fish in order to lessen the pressure on our marine resources. one thing that bohol can do is to promote the establishment of fish farms -- small scale or commercial scale -- that will cater to the production of bangus and hito.  this is the most sustainable way to go.

Bohol School of Fisheries (BSF) in Cogtong, Candijay
Clarin School of Fisheries (CSF) in Clarin; and
Calape National School of Fisheries (NCSF) in Calape

This issue could be forwarded to our school of fisheries in Bohol. Are these institutions antiquated?
Money should go to this sector because it means a better livelihood and fish industry  for the Bol-anons? Adunay kwarta, asa man nipadolong?
