The skin of the knifefish which has been preying on the native species in Laguna Lake can be processed into exotic leather that can be used as raw material for bags, shoes, wallets and fashion accessories.ย 

Conceptualized by Daisy Ladra of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) with the help of the Bureau of Animal Industryโ€™s Animal Products Development Center (APDC), the knifefish leather can replace imported cow hide for the manufacture of leather products.
