The Pampanga State Agricultural University (PSAU) harvested and processed red tilapia in Magalang, Pampanga on 6 May 2020.

 

The red tilapia, which will be distributed to the frontliners and stranded university students by tomorrow, is a product of the ongoing project “Utilization of Velvet Bean (Mucuna pruriens) as Feedstuff on the Aquaculture Performance of Red Tilapia” which is being supported by the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Agricultural Research (DA-BAR) since 2018. ###

 

The harvested red tilapia will be distributed the next day by the Pampanga State Agricultural University (PSAU) staff and student volunteers to the frontliners who are manning the checkpoints, as well as to PSAU’s stranded students.
