Milkfish, also known as Chanos chanos, is a species of fish that is commonly found in the Indian and Pacific Oceans, including the waters around Southeast Asia. It is a medium-sized fish that can grow up to 1 meter in length and weigh up to 14 kilograms. It has a silvery-blue body with a forked tail, and a small mouth with numerous tiny teeth. Milkfish are primarily herbivorous, feeding on algae, plankton, and other small aquatic plants and animals. It is a popular fish for aquaculture, and is farmed in many countries throughout Asia. It is also exported to other parts of the world, particularly to Asian communities in North America and Europe. It is a staple food in various parts of the world, particularly in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Taiwan. Milkfish is usually sold fresh or frozen, and can be prepared in a variety of ways, including grilling, frying, and steaming.
Milkfish Market Trends:
One of the primary factors driving the market is the increasing demand for fish as a healthy protein source. With the growing awareness about the health benefits of fish consumption, more people are incorporating fish into their diets. Milkfish, in particular, is valued for its high protein content, low fat content, and rich array of vitamins and minerals. Additionally, the growth of the aquaculture industry is creating a positive market outlook. Due to the decline in wild fish stocks, aquaculture has become an important source of fish for human consumption. Other than this, milkfish is well-suited for aquaculture, as it is fast-growing, adaptable to a range of environments, and resistant to disease. Besides this, the emergence of online retail channels has made it easier for consumers to access a wider range of fish products, including milkfish, which is positively influencing the market growth. Online retailers offer convenient, fast, and affordable delivery options, making it easier for consumers to purchase milkfish products from anywhere in the world. Pet owners are increasingly seeking high-quality, protein-rich diets for their pets, and milkfish is considered a healthy and nutritious option. As a result, the growing trend of using milkfish as a key ingredient in the preparation of pet food is also escalating the demand for milkfish. Furthermore, the product is also used in a variety of dishes, including soups, stews, and grilled or fried preparations. Other major factors contributing to the market growth include the rising number of sustainable and environment-friendly aquaculture practices, and the growing interest in ethnic cuisines and exotic foods.
