Milkfish in Fiji

milkfish image from www.anglerschoice.com.auAccording to a report published by SEAFDEC/AQD, Philippines, milkfish (Chanos chanos) farming is a centuries-old industry in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Taiwan.

Research into the culture of milkfish has not been limited to the Philippines. Research into the feasibility of milkfish culture in Fiji has been undertaken. Esteban Dela Cruz has published a report 1997, through the FAO, entitled, Potential of milkfish farming development in Fiji. From the summary:

Milkfish has been a successful food industry in Asian countries like Philippines, Taiwan, and Indonesia. The Government of Fiji had wanted to develop a similar industry, and so enlisted the help of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations. The South Pacific Aquaculture Development Project (Phase II) devised this survey to ascertain the extent of the milkfish stocks in Fiji waters, and further to investigate the possibility of milkfish farming in Fiji. Such farms have already been established in Nauru, Kiribati and Tuvalu, and it was thought that milkfish farms would be not only a good source of protein for human diets and an alternative to depleting fish from the sea (and thus a way to ameliorate an environmental pressure), but also a source of income for villages and farmers as tuna bait as well.

There are many sites suitable to develop milkfish farms in Fiji, such as unused rice paddies, salt or prawn farms, or swamps and marshlands. Farmers need to acquire skills in preparing the ponds for stocking by draining, drying, leveling, and liming or poisoning for unwanted animals (where necessary). Also, dykes and water gates must be constructed and farmers must learn to feed the ponds to grow benthic algae (brackishwater ponds), and plankton (freshwater ponds). The design of the farms must take into account that milkfish swim against the current, so the catching ponds will be placed to concentrate fish from the grow-out ponds for easy harvesting.

The Fiji Islands Trade and Investment Bureau has published a report (2001) entitled Milkfish Farming Project Profile. This report outlines the investment potential of a milkfish project, including government incentives, and some forecast costs. Their summary of the market:

Market Milkfish is currently used as an intermediate good – an input – in the form of live baits for catching fish. Given the fact that milkfish baits supplements the longline tuna industry, which earns around F$40 million in export income, is indicative of the fact that there is a considerable market locally.

Prospective investors should do their own due diligence, and use the figures purely as indicators rather than current market realities.

    pramiracetam experience reddit If I had not been following the Pats during camp and preseason, you may have convinced me that they are just a shadow of the team they were in recent years. The truth is, the offense will not miss a beat with the new players on offense. Brady does not need to pass the ball to move the chains and score (45/55 run /pass mix). They have a very good running game(7th) and it just got better with the addition of Blount. You forgot to mention that the Pats found a “diamond in the rough” with UDFA TE Zach Sudfeld, the next up and coming star TE. The Pats will still score 30 points per game. Brady put up those points without a deep threat in recent years, they now have deep threat options (Thompkins, Dobson, Boyce). Teams will now have to cover the entire field instead of trying to stop Welker (former star player) with the short over the middle passes. Actually, the Pats offense is younger, faster, and more explosive this year. Pats defense should be a top 12 defense this year……and by the way, how could they be ranked 25th overall in 2012 when they were 6th against the run and 29th against the pass. Also, they were tied for 9th in points allowed…..the stat that really matters.

That is their right in US law. And even if they did transgress in law, I am certain that no American judge or leading barrister would have the self-confidence to make the sort of remarks that Blackett has made about our elite forces.
