The author would like to give special thanks to the Bureau of Animal Industry, Fertilizer and Pesticide Authority and the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics for their support in the collation of the necessary data, and also to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, Department of Agriculture, National Food Authority, Philippine Coconut Authority, Aquaculture Department of the Fisheries Development Center, and the University of the Philippines at Los Banos, College of Agriculture.

My heartfelt thanks to my colleagues and friends in the aquaculture industry for unselfishly providing first-hand data, to the respondents of the surveys, to Dr. Albert G.J. Tacon for his valuable guidance, and to my project assistant Ms. Janet Tordesillas for her dedication and patience.

Finally, this Atlas would not have been possible without the understanding, support and inspiration of my family - most especially my wife Ruby and son Theon.
