CALAPE, Bohol, January 11 (PIA)—A Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) facility here in Bohol has the capacity to give some 25,000 bangus fingerlings to fishermen’s and people’s organization (PO) intending to go into fish cage or fish pen bangus culture as a first time incentive.
In another bid to upscale the local bangus production with pelagic fishes going to warmer waters in this cold climate thus drastically reducing local fish catch and pulling prices up, BFAR aqua-technologists dangle the viability of fish cultures.
Aqua-technologists Ma. Rocile Angela Josol and Jonaren Lafuente, stationed at the BFAR’s Central Visayas Multi-Species Nursery, Demonstration and Training Center (CVMSNDC) here at Bentig Calape said they have enough technology to bring down to communities that could drastically increase fish production.
The regional center for the nursery of bangus, siganid, pompano, grouper and abalone clams, CVMSNDTC, now under their center chief Gamelba Dumadag, produces fingerlings for region’s requirements for top grade commercial fish for government and private fish culture across the region.
