WATCH for the June 2014 issue of Agriculture Magazine which will be off the press shortly. On the cover is Dr. Emilia Tobias Quinitio of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center/Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC/AQC) holding a king crab broodstock.
The new development is that with improved laboratory techniques in breeding and hatchery operations, they can produce crablets for year-round production of soft-shell crabs. Soft-shell crab production is one more possible commercial venture entrepreneurs can invest in. Of course, crablets for year-round culture of full-grown king crabs will also now be possible.
Another interesting feature is on melon production in a big area in Taguig City which is part of Metro Manila. Then there is the feature on Jess Domingo who is into a profitable organic pig production.
