Abstract

Milkfish culture in brackish water ponds dominates the Philippine aquaculture industry. It was introduced into the Philippines over 400 years ago by Malay emigrants. The fishpond industry was originally concentrated in the towns of Malabon and Navotas, 10 km (6 mi) north of Manila (Villaluz 1953). It is now scattered throughout the country with provinces of Iloilo, Bulacan, and Pangasinan having the largest concentrations of milkfish farms. Milkfish are also cultured in fishpens along the shorelines of Laguna de Bay, a 91,136 ha (225,000 acre) freshwater lake.
