Catfish is locally known as hito to Tagalogs, paltat to Ilocanos, pantat to Cebuanos and Ilonggos, and ito to Pampangeños. It is one of the most important freshwater food fishes not only in the Philippines, but in the whole of Southeast Asia. Catfish culture requires less area, can tolerate poor water quality, as well as high density stocking. The course includes lectures and hands-on sessions on breeding/spawning and larval rearing, as well as nursery and grow-out culture of catfish. Nutrition and feed development, and health management aspects for the species will also be covered.
