Philippine officials on Jan. 19 said the country has launched a campaign to promote new cigarettes - not for sucking but for use in aquaculture.
Over the next six months, nearly 400 fish farmers in a coastal province in the northern Philippines will use "tobacco powder" to kill molluscs and other pests.
Cigarettes are dispersed from tobacco leaves and are considered an alternative to toxic chemicals that leave a lasting impact on the environment.

this new approach is expected to change the traditional fish farming practices in the Philippines and is also one of the efforts to find alternative sources of aquaculture, as well as the global non-smoking campaign. tobacco of the Philippine Government.
