  • Background on knife fish Knife fish first arrived in the country through the importation of aquarium or ornamental fish. It is called such because of it’s shape that resembles a knife. Because of floods, it made its way into Laguna de Bay. It’s population has boomed and is harming the aquaculture industry in Laguna Lake. Fish pen operators are suffering from losses because the knife fish lay eggs on stakes and poles in the fish pens. They are highly aggressive and highly carnivorous, They eat bangus, tilapia and shrimps.
  • According to a survey made by BFAR last year, it showed that knife fish comprised 40.35 percent of the total catch while harvest of aquaculture fish is much less: Tilapia, 24.15 percent; carp, 15.92 percent; and milkfish, 0.58 percent. Knife fish has to eat 7 kilograms of different types of fish to grow to a kilogram. The fish it eats costs an average of P150 a kg while the knife fish is so cheap at Php 18 to 20 a kg. So the fishermen are really at a losing end. (Source: http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/359781/knife-fish-newest-scourge-in-lagunas-fish-farms) To date, Knife fish are still a threat in the livelihood of the fisher folk communities of Taguig. In an interview with some fishermen, they said that they would just normally throw the Knife fish catch because it has no value to them. Background on knife fish
