Philippines Talent Database

In the Philippines, 1 to 3 billion fish are farmed annually. Often, these animals are raised in poor conditions, without access to veterinary care and by farmers who lack knowledge of best management practices. Yet little is being done to improve these conditions.

Makaisda is an early-stage, locally-led Fish Welfare Initiative project in the Philippines that is working to change that.

Our work in the Philippines

We are currently exploring 4 interconnected models of improving fish welfare standards in the Philippines: corporate outreach, farmer education, policy change, and social media engagement.


Our biggest bottleneck is the people to implement these projects.
