Taal Lake is a freshwater lake located in the province of Batangas, on the island of Luzon in the Philippines. The lake is the third largest lake in the Philippines.  

The photos show fish cages in which all-male of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus and Pangasius catfish are cultured. The cages could have different shapes (round or square) and volumes. The group of cages were supported by the American Soybean Association (ASA) through providing the floating pellets for caged fish in which soybean has been used in a full replacement of fish meal with competitive results.
