By integrating cage farming, this EPP seeks to increase the production of high-value
fish species (e.g. sea bass, grouper, tilapia and lobster) to account for 28% of
total aquaculture production by 2020.
The Department of Fisheries (DoF) will also identify anchor
companies to train, set standard operating procedures and guidelines for the industry,
helping to create an integrated approach for large-scale production – from
hatchery to processing.
- 9,336 tonnes of fish were produced in 2014, exceeding the KPI target of 6,500 tonnes.
- More cluster programmes for small players will be created to improve the implementation of this EPP.
Integrated Cage Farming
The ETP has indentified aquaculture as one of the country national economic areas and driving force in the country's national policy.
