The National Tilapia Dialogue sought to bring together key stakeholders of the whole value chain of the Tilapia industry and craft comprehensive strategies and frameworks for resolving and mitigating urgent concerns of the Tilapia sector. In addition, the DA-BFAR’s National Freshwater Fisheries Technology Center presented the National Tilapia Industry Roadmap 2022-2025, wherein highlights of the Tilapia industry were discussed such as performance, supply and value chain, market trends, and the current status of the Tilapia industry in the Philippines and in the international trade.
The final output of this event, which has undergone extensive and participatory action, review, and evaluation from key players in the Tilapia industry, will be used as a basis for the upcoming Tilapia Congress next year and as a blueprint for the sustainable development of the industry.
