To help local fishermen to increase their catch and improve their livelihood, BFAR Central Luzon continues to provide various fishing gears to the province of Bataan. Earlier today, August 20, Balanga received 12 gill nets, 3 marine engines, 7 solar lamps and 8 PE nets. Bagac, on the other hand, received 2 shallow payaos.
It is the aim of BFAR Central Luzon that these environment-friendly fishing equipment be utilized by the local government in the proper development, management and conservation of coastal resources. MA of Bagac Nona Manalastas and FARMC of Balanga Jaime Buenaventura both ensured that the fishing implements will be put to good use and maintained properly.
The distribution was led by PFO Romina Yutuc together with Joseph Bitara of Production Division. (RCC/ photos by FB)
