Villa Balinmanok Beach Resort When traveling to Pangasinan comes to mind, the popular destinations would always be the Hundred Islands National Park in Alaminos, the beach resorts in Bolinao or the pilgrimage town of Manaoag. But lately, tourists are now discovering another must-visit destination in Pangasinan, the coastal town of Dasol - which also has nice beach resorts.
My cousin and her spouse work and reside in Metro Manila. They visit and attend to their ponds during weekends. The original property was less than two hectares. A significant amount of clearing, excavation and landfill, and dike building were done before the property became productive as a Class A fishpond.
Through land filling, area was reclaimed on which to build a small concrete house next to the river. A small bamboo shed at the other end of the property was built and serves as living quarters for the caretaker. My cousin also bought a small adjacent pond to be used as nursery for raising bangus fingerlings.
Reinforced concrete wall for erosion control and against wave action being built next to the Basing River Bangus are almost of same sizes as can be seen in the rearing pond feeding area; when harvested later, the size of the bangus will be almost uniform The property consists of: Unique features of a Class A or first class fish farm that gives it a premium over Class B and C ponds are: Located next to a river — The property is situated at the bank right next to the Basing River.
This is the key feature location that gives this type of ponds the highest class status among bangus farms. The brackish river water is the prime source of water of the Class A pond. Continuous water exchange — A Class A pond benefits from the regular water exchange through the ebb and flow of the tides.
It is watered during high tide. Draining occurs during low tides. A fish farm can also be classified as Class A when it has exclusive use of a short supply canal that draws water from a creek that is in turn connected to a main river.
However, the canal should be maintained constantly and dredged at least once a year to make sure that tidal waters flow in and out of the ponds. Higher stocking density — it can support a higher stocking density of bangus under a semi-intensive culture.
With one meter of depth, it can accommodate 8, to 10, fingerlings per hectare that feed on natural food during the first 45 to 60 days and on commercial feeds thereafter.
When dissolved oxygen is low, my cousin runs the water pump installed at the main gate to pump in water and serve as aerator. More uniform bangus sizes — during grow-out, sizes of adult bangus tend to be more uniform and their rate of growth does not vary as much as those in a closed system Class C pond.
More conducive pond environment for raising prawns in polyculture with bangus — Survival rate for tiger prawns is much higher when raised in a Class A pond compared to say, Class C a closed system pond.
Hence Class A ponds generate greater profit potential higher bangus sales plus prawn sales per square meter compared to lower class ponds. Easier method of harvesting — Depending on the size of the rearing or grow-out pond and pond layout, method of harvesting for Class A ponds can be through total draining, "pasubang", or use of haul seine net "kalokor".
If all the bangus stock and prawns are to be taken out, then total draining is done during low tide. Else, if the water level is still high, we need to spend more for diesel fuel and water pump rental due to longer hours to drain out the water. This will not be cost-effective, so we might as well wait for the dry months.
But then, you can't take out all your stock bangus, tilapia, and prawns using this method. In these types of ponds, when total draining is resorted to during dry months, "kalokor" is done first to take out most of the bangus and tilapia.
The rest of the fish and the prawns are hand picked after the water is totally drained out. For more details on harvesting through pond draining "limas" click this. Better pond preparation — adequate sun drying of the pond can be done readily by the fish farmer and there is enough time to clean, level, and plow the pond bottom.
You can also have enough time to build a diagonal canal to help you in your harvesting.
In my case as a Class C pond operator, I wish I had more time to sun dry my pond and plow my pond bottom.This summer I was finally able to put my first underwater cam to the test during a trip to Islands Alaminos, Pangasinan.
