Pangasius investments reach new high

Pangasius catfish, locally known as "hito", is fast becoming a big industry in Northeastern, Southern and Central Mindanao regions.

Local pangasius has received investments reaching an estimated PHP 200 million (USD 4.32 million) per year after its introduction in late 2007. The mass production is being noted in Agusan del Norte and Agusan del Sur in Northeastern Mindanao (Caraga region), in Compostela Valley province and Sarangani in Southern Mindanao (Region Xl) in North and South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat and Maguindanao in Central Mindanao (Region 12), PIA News reports.

Business group and individuals have already been promoting Pangasius hypopthalmus, also called "dory" or "sutchi fish" since late 2007 and their mass production was noted in the third quarter of 2008.

Pangasius was originally just harvested in Vietnam's Mekong River. Now, there are several hatchery ponds, nursery ponds, processing companies and fish ponds located at various areas in said provinces.

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) are now assisting these pangasius business group or individuals in technology aspect and marketing.

"This new and progressing business is already making a wave in the market," observed Northeastern Mindanao DTI regional director Brielgo Pagaran.

He added a businessman in Agusan has started engaging in the catfish business, including tilapia and has 80,000 fingerlings to begin with.

Pangasius is already being sold in several eateries and restaurants at PHP 120 (USD 2.59) to PHP 150 (USD 3.24) per kilo, he added.

Data gathered from the DTI and BFAR of the three regions disclosed that the Philippines imports around 600 metric tonnes of pangasius fillet valued at USD 1.65 million from Vietnam every month.

Markets for this fish are also opening in Europe, US and other countries in Asia.

The DTI and BFAR projected the local market can generate sufficient supply to enter the international market by 2012.

Aside from the rising income of business group, farmers and individuals, the DTI and BFAR also noted a growth in local employment.
