Fisher Farms grows most of its milkfish in the pristine waters of Pangasinan in the northern Philippines. Milkfish grown in saltwater have sweeter, more flavorful, firmer, and cleaner flesh than fish grown in ponds. With fewer micro-organisms contaminating the flesh, the fish also has a longer shelf life when harvested. The fish are fed with the right amount of protein and nutrients at every stage of their development. Fisher Farms controls the diet of its catch and uses 100% high protein feeds to ensure high-quality fish meat.
The company’s methods are also environment-friendly because its growers use just the right amount of feeds – there is no excess to pollute the environment. Moreover, FFI’s aquaculture processes help prevent the onset of fish kill caused by the depletion of oxygen in the water.
To date, Fisher Farms has the largest number of sea fish cages in the Philippines. While the majority of its business is driven by its bangus or milkfish products, FFI is also in the business of growing and processing other species such as tilapia, pompano, and shrimp.
