Abstract With the outbreak on global ecological and economic crisis, a mitigating technology in post-harvest Tilapia aquaculture was developed. This project (PartII) is focused on product standardization and verification analysis to answer the world’s food security/global sustainability problems. This innovative technology helped address the in-breeding concerns on Tilapia production, as well as the problems brought by climate change to aquaculture fishes. The developed product has undergone standardization procedures using single group experimental design. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used in determining significant differences among treatment means. Verification analysis such as organoleptic testing, nutritional assessment and physico-chemical analysis were conducted to evaluate the product. Its nutrition profile was proven beneficial for health- conscious individuals bearing a good source of protein, trans fat, vitamin C and iron, with liked very much in all its attributes. The microbio-chemical analysis resulted on Level 1 satisfactory aerobic plate and Staphylococcus aureus counts, with marginal E.coli count while the iodine in salt content was moderate. Treatment 3 emerged as the best standardized production method accepted by the sensory panel, and was found shelf-stable for seven months. The technology has transformed the less marketable Tilapia into a profitable business venture while helping marginalized aquafarmers resolve problems on fishery losses in the Philippines.
Key words: global sustainability, poverty alleviation , Tilapia Tocino, post-harvest technology, product development, aquaculture, climate change, Philippines

    CHAPTER I THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction Fish production in the Philippines is estimated at 6 million metric tons a year. About 55 percent comes from aquaculture and the rest is caught from the sea. Fish and fishery products are extremely consumable merchandise. After catch, these goods cannot be held for long and have to be marketed as fast as possible to prevent deterioration. Fish processing plays an important role in the fish industry. Processing transforms a perishable product like fish, into a more constant and long-lasting product. Since processing changes the product form, this adds value to the product.…

    The world’s fisheries are a huge resource that our society has overused and therefore, has caused a decline in fish stocks, which has lead to a world fishery crisis.

    One of the additional problems caused by overfishing is diminished food supply for animals and humans. This hurts the marine ecosystem of oceans and seas all around the globe, which in turn directly impacts human nutrition. Overfishing has increased greatly over the past decade (Nuttal 1). According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, "over 70% of the world 's fish species are either fully exploited or depleted" (Nuttal 1). This problem will continue if people around the world do not change their ways soon to prevent extinction of all of the fish in our planet 's waters. Overfishing of the world 's oceans is rapidly destroying sea life, all of which act as renewable natural resources. As a result, the destruction of such natural resources negatively impacts the quality of…

    The future growth of Philippine aquaculture may not be sustained unless new markets are developed, market competitiveness is strengthened and farming risks are reduced. In this age of international trade and competition, the Philippine aquaculture industry needs to plan and implement a development and management programme with a global perspective. The Philippine government and the private sector are in the process of preparing a national fisheries development plan which includes aquaculture.…

    Impact of Overfishing

    • 887 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The human appetite for fish has outweighed the ocean’s ability to meet the demand, meaning the fish are being harvested faster than they can reproduce. Larger predatory fish such as flounder, cod, tilapia, tuna and swordfish have been harvested from the ocean at an alarming rate. Without the larger species of fish, other species such as anchovies and sardines have had a dramatic increase in population as their predators are not as plentiful. This change in the ocean population causes an ecological imbalance in the ocean which can have a…
