  Largest prawn stew: Philippine's Prawn Festival breaks Guinness world record (VIDEO)

  
BONTOC, Southern Leyte, Philippine--The Southern Leyte provincial government served 10,500 pieces of prawns (350 kilograms) on a 160-foot long table at Southern Leyte State University (SLSU) campus during the "Ulang (Prawn) Festival,"
setting the world record for the Largest prawn stew / Largest Ulang Stew, according to the World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/.largest prawn stew world record set at Prawn Festival in Philippine

  The Guinness world record for the largest shrimp cocktail weighed 538.5 kg (1,187 lb 3 oz) and was organized by Asociación Tres Islas (Mexico) at the Mazatlán International Center in Mazatlán, Mexico.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest fish stew; it weighed 3,020.02 kg (6,658 lb) and was achieved by the University of Massachusetts Dining Services in Amherst, Massachusetts, USA.

  Mabel Calva, school administrator, said the university invited Guinness World Records officials to the festival but that the school could not afford the record keepers' travel expenses.

  Bontoc Councilor Jannu Idjao, who supplied the prawns, said at least 350 kg, or at least 10,500 pieces, of fresh prawns were used in the world's largest prawn stew.

   The food on the table can be accounted with simple arithmetic: 353 kilos of freshwater ulang in varied sizes and weights equal to 10,500 pieces, and the cooked, hanging rice totalled 1,535 units.

  More than 400 people ate the prawns, including Commissioner Nenalyn Defensor of the Commission on Higher Education.

  The world record attempt was part of activities for the two-day First International Fresh Water Prawn Congress, which was also participated in by representatives from Vietnam, Kenya and Norway.

  The congress was spearheaded by the SLSU Bontoc campus, which specializes in fisheries and aquatic research, to highlight Southern Leyte as the "prawn capital" of Eastern Visayas. Only the province has a prawn hatchery in the entire region.

  Edgardo Esperancilla, Department of Science and Technology director in Eastern Visayas, described the prawn industry in the Visayas as a "sunrise industry" worth P4 million to P5 million.

 "But it has potential because a new technology is being developed to make it an alternative source of livelihood or a main source of livelihood along with tilapia-growing," he said.
