  1. i would like to culture gourami in ponds. how could i get the fingelings and the cost for exporting it

    • Hello AQID, as per our expert, he is not aware of any existing hatcheries in the Philippines producing gourami (Trichogaster pectoralis, T. thrichopterus), nor of any attempt in our country to breed these species in captivity. For reference, you may wish to get a copy of “A Manual for commercial production of gourami, Trichogaster trichopterus, a temporary paired spawner” through this site: Accordingly, this manual was authored by Hawaii-based scientists at the Center for Tropical and Subtropical Aquaculture for gourami as an ornamental fish commodity. Cheers!

    may i also ask if you have available juveniles/broodstocks of sandfish (Holothuria scabra)and how much.

    thank you!

    • Hi Jamelita! We inquired from our abalone hatchery manager and it seems their order list for abalone is full up to July 2013. Since it takes to 3-4 months to raise (and diet-tag) a batch, maybe some will be available in November-December next year; please inquire again if you’re still interested. As for sandfish, we do not sell juveniles/broodstock at this time since all our hatchery production are used for research.

  70. Interesado po sana akong bumili ng day old milkfish larvae. Dito po ako sa Himamaylan City, Neg. Occ., hindi po ba delikado ang pag transport ng semilya? Personal po ba akong pupunta dyan para bumili o pwede nyo ipadala na lang at dito ko na lang sa Bacolod kunin?

    • Hi Joma! Hindi naman delikado ang pag-transport ng newly hatched larvae. We also give 3% allowance para sa mortality. And yes, we can either send you the packed larvae to Bacolod port or you can come to SEAFDEC/AQD to watch the harvest / packing of the larvae and arrange their transport yourself.

  71. Inquire ko lang po kung paano itransport ang grouper fingerlings? Since kung galing iloilo to samar? or from binangonan to samar? di po ba madedead?

    • Hi Grace! Hindi po mamatay ang fingerlings kasi nilalagay po ito sa plastic bag na may malinis na tubig alat at may oxygen. Pagkatapos, ang plastic bag ay nilalagay sa carton na may ice pack para ma-maintain ang cool temperature during transport. Via air cargo po ipapadala ang inyong order; but we only arrange shipment up to the Cebu airport; you need to arrange transport from Cebu to Samar.

  72. Good day!I am an alumni of SEAFDEC trainings (Marine Fish Hatchery 1998 and Internship Training yr 2000).I would like to ask if you can provide us Seabass fry (L. calcarifer). We would like to try and test this commodity here in the United Arab Emirates in a fresh water recirculating aquaculture system (RAS). We need around 50,000 fry and if this will be successful, we will order every month with the same volume. Kindly inform us what are the requirements from the government authorities so that we can comply and make this request possible. Thanks and my regards.

    • Good day Felmar! In our initial talks with AQD’s marine fish hatchery manager, yes, it is possible for AQD to provide 1-cm fry at the volume you requested but the delivery will not be monthly but every two months because sea bass need to be spawned and its eggs/larvae grown to this size first. We are also not an exporter, so we’re afraid we can’t help you there; but perhaps you can contact DA-BFAR on this; they have a website.

  73. Goodday Sir/Madam;do you have native hito and dalag fingerlings at Binangonan station? Would
    you qoute me,how much are they? available any-
    day or put an order to be pickup?.or drive there and buy? needing just enough for amateur
    backyard aquaculturist.thanx

    • Hi Mr. Salcedo! We have native hito fingerlings but we don’t have dalag. Hito fingerlings cost Php1/cm. Due to the low demand of hito, we only produce the fingerlings by order basis. You can order in advance and arrange for transport. And it would take about a month of rearing to reach the desired size. For further details, please email or call (02) 502-6716.

  74. Good day. Is it possible to raise and breed ayungin in an aquaponic system? If so, where can I buy fingerlings?

    • Good day Mr. Bernardo! We’re afraid that we don’t have an aquaponics set-up or experience. We were only able to breed ayungin by hormone induction; and since the research is still in progress, we don’t sell ayungin fingerlings yet. Maybe BFAR can help find/direct you to suppliers of ayungin fingerlings.

  75. Good Day!

    Ask ko lang yong Tilapia na 3-5 day old fry sex reversed na po ba yon? If now how old dapat yong pag aapply ng sex revesal proccess?

    • Hi Leo! No, tilapia is not yet sex-reversed at this age. According to our expert, newly hatched tilapia should be fed with hormone containing diets for about 21-27 days to induce sex reversal in female fry.

  76. Hello po Webmaster.

    Ask ko lang po sana regarding the tilapia fingerlings size 14, same pa rin po ba yung price as above. Could you please let me know how old and big it is in terms of its length and weight.

    Also kindly advise po yung pick up area.



    • Hi Rick! Yes, the price is still the same. Size 14 is about 90 days old (tank reared) with a length of about 1.8-2 inches and approximately weighs 4-5 grams. We can ship tilapia to you or you can pick them up at our Binangonan, Rizal station.

  77. Ask q lang po ung mininmum purchase for red tilapia and how much is the shipping cost bound to Butuan city? Salamat po!!!

    • Hi Ms. Nemis! We don’t have a minimum order requirement; we let our clients decide on the quantity. Regarding the freight to Butuan, we can’t give you an estimate since we have no previous experience shipping to your place. We need to know first the quantity that you wish to order for us to compute the corresponding shipping cost. For further details, please call (033) 511-9029.

  78. Good day Sir/Madam!
    I want to ask if you have any tilapia hatcheries or any place in Northern Luzon where I can buy tilapia fingerlings. I am from Panagasinan and have a tilapia fish farm.

  79. Where in Bicol region can we buy pla pla fry or fingerlings of good quality? We are in Catanduanes. Thank you.

    • Hi Rossen! Our stations in Tigbauan, Iloilo and in Binangonan, Rizal sell pla pla fingerlings (Php 0.20-0.50/pc for sizes 24/22 to 17/14). To order in Iloilo please call (033) 511-9029; while in Rizal, please email or call (02) 502-6716
