The Philippines’ inaugural In-Pond Raceway System (IPRS) marks a great milestone in the country’s aquaculture sector, reports

This technology allows aqua farmers to use the same amount of water to produce more fish, significantly increasing a pond’s production potential while lowering per unit production costs, reducing risk and improving yields.

“We wanted to use this technology, as the U.S. Soybean Export Council introduced us to IPRS,” said Jericho Pascual, Alsons Aquaculture Corp. vice president for manufacturing.

“This technology is also an answer to the food security initiatives of the Philippine government.”

IPRS technology, with U.S. Soy as a nutrient-dense feedstuff, is set to advance food security measures in the country. Increased pond efficiency means increased production of and access to protein locally.
