As the Global population increases, the population of commercial captured fish cannot keep up. Aquaculture, also known as aqua farming on the other hand, can support the continuous increase demand of supply. Aquaculture also provides efficient production of protein.
Well, good news! We have a huge processor and exporter of fish and seafood here in the Philippines. It is located at the tip corner of Southern Mindanao, Sarangani Bay.
Sarangani Bay is bred and cultured by Philippines’ only fully integrated farm-to-market fish processing operator, Alsons Aquaculture Corporation since 1988. They are well known in catering high-quality packaged seafood products internationally.
For more than 10 years, Sarangani Bay has been trusted by Filipino Communities in the US, Canada, Guam, Australia, China and Middle East as the supplier of world class quality fresh Bangus and other seafoods.
2 weeks ago they sent me 3 variants of their famous Prime Bangus (Milkfish) – Marinated, Belly, and Smoked. They sent 2 pieces of each variant. What makes it the best is every Bangus was hygienically deboned by experts.
Before we consume food, we always have to carefully check its quality and that’s what I did before cooking it. To my surprise, it appeared fresh, given the fact that it was delivered to me all the way from Southern Mindanao. It didn’t have a foul smell too.
I expected the Bangus to smell and taste very fishy, but it wasn’t. It is far from the ones that came from the Fisheries.
The first one we cooked was their Marinated Milkfish. Eventhough it’s marinated for a long time, the volume of the sauce used to marinate it with wasn’t so strong, it didn’t taste sour. It has the right amount of richness of taste. The fish was fat I loved it.
