BFAR Kalinga releases 108k fingerlings to 163 fisherfolks


CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga (PIA) - -The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Provincial Fishery Office continues  to  support  and improve productivity  of fisherfolks    distributing   recently  108,100 fingerlings to 163 fishpond operators and  for  stock on a reservoir.

In Balbalan, 14,750 tilapia fingerlings were distributed to 21 recipients and 1,500 common carp fingerlings to three others.

In Tanudan, distributed were 19,000 pieces tilapia to 50 beneficiaries, 1,000 pieces common carps to two beneficiaries and 6,000 pieces African Hito to eight others.

In Pinukpuk, 25,800 pieces tilapia were given to 31 recipients and 2,000 common carps to three recipients.

In Tabuk City, 35 recipients were provided with 21,050 pieces tilapia while nine others received 8,000 pieces of common carps.
About 1,500 pieces tilapia fingerlings were released to an individual in Pinukpuk for the Rice Plus Fish Culture techno demo project while 7,500 pieces common carp are kept as stock for a reservoir.

“We have already given them capital to operate a small fishpond so, it’s their turn to sustain them, Kalinga Provincial Fishery Office head Joyce Ducyogen said adding  that BFAR will still provide fingerlings and technical assistance.

This fingerlings distribution is under the regular program of BFAR as the fsheries assistance under the Special Area for Agriculture Development was already terminated.

 In a related development, Ducyogen said they will celebrate the Fisherfolk Month through a “Kadiwa Ni Ani at Kita” market at the compound of the Provincial Agricultural Services Office from May 25-26 with the display and sale of low price vegetables, fish and other crops.
