According to 2005 statistics, the production of milkfish in brackishwater in the Philippines comprised the largest proportion of milkfish production, followed by fish cage farming in marine waters and finally the culture of the species in pens in freshwater areas. In regard to the productivity of the species per unit area, it was highest in marine environments which could be attributed to the proper depth of pens, favorable water conditions and the strict use of commercialized feeds.
