Abstract

SUPPLY CHAIN ANALYSIS OF MANTIS SHRIMP (Lysiosquillina Maculata: STOMATOPODA) IN TAWI-TAWI

Suzmita L. Baigtu* and Roldan T. Echem

ABSTRACT

This study aimed to determine the supply chain analysis of Mantis shrimp (Lysiosquillina maculata: Stomatopoda) in Tawi-Tawi. Specifically, this study sought to determine the supply chain of Mantis shrimp from the fisherman to the wholesaler and to the retailer. To determine the morphometric characteristics, the total length, width and total weight of Mantis shrimp were measured. The abundance of the Mantis shrimps were determined by counting directly the number of individuals of Mantis shrimps in the three different sites. The study finds out that there’s no fishermen that catch Mantis shrimp in Bongao, only in Sibuto and Sapa-Sapa. In Sibuto, all of the fishermen catch Mantis shrimp everyday and most (10%) of them catch 6-10 pieces. While most (10%) of the fishermen in Sapa-Sapa catch 0-5 pieces of Mantis shrimps every three days. Most (20%) of them sold their Mantis shrimp catch to the wholesaler with the price of 101-500 pesos per kg. The Mantis shrimps will be delivered to the wholesalers in Bongao. Most (13.33%) of the wholesalers purchased 21-30 kg and 50 kg and above of Mantis shrimp in a week. Most (23.33%) of them purchased it with the price of 1001-1500 pesos. And then they (20%) will sell it to the retailer with the price of 1001-1500 pesos. For the delivery of Mantis shrimp outside Tawi-Tawi, 16.67% said yes and the other 16.67% said no. For those who deliver outside Tawi-Tawi, wholesalers said that they deliver it to Zamboanga City. The wholesalers in Zamboanga will sell and deliver the Mantis shrimp to Manila. Then wholesaler in Manila will sell and export the Mantis shrimp to Mainland China or Hongkong. For the measurement of Mantis shrimps, based on the results of the study, it can be concluded that male Mantis shrimps in Bongao with the average length of 25.31 cm, average width of 6.31 cm and the average weight of 310.25 g were longer and heavier than the female Mantis shrimps with the average length of 23.36 cm, average width of 5.93 cm and the average weight of 193.24 g. While in Sibuto, female Mantis shrimp with the average length of 25 cm, width of 6.31 and weight of 340.89 g were longer and heavier than the male Mantis shrimps with the average length of 20.75 cm, average width of 5.08 cm and average weight of 243.33 g. In Sapa-Sapa, the male Mantis shrimps with the average length of 22.63 cm, average width of 5.75 cm and average weight of 319.75 g were longer than female with the average length of 20.21 cm, average width of 5.29 cm and the average weight of 265.00 g. In the abundance of Mantis shrimps, the results reveal that Site 3 (Sapa-Sapa) got the highest number of Mantis shrimps per week among the 3 sites, therefore, it can be concluded that Mantis shrimps were abundant in Site 3.
