Fishing for new drugs

by Luis Wilfrido Atienza

Fishing and aquaculture are central parts of life in the Philippines. A wide variety of local fish such as bangus and tilapia are staples of the Filipino diet, feeding millions of Filipinos every day. The Philippines being an archipelago means that people all over the country support their communities and families by fishing and selling fish. Through aquaculture, or fish farming, people make a living, produce food, and drive the local economy.
