Promotion of Aquashade Technology in Luzon to Increase Low of Nile Tilapia Seed Production During Warm Months

Aquashade technology involves the installation of netting materials on top of the pond during summer months. The technology uses a net for shading and proven to reduce water temperature by more than 3°C during the hottest period of the day. The favorable conditions provided by Aquashade is expected to increase spawning rate and seed/fry production by more than 100% in both pond-based and hapa-based seed production systems.
