PIA Press Release

Fisherfolk Center in Gusa opens

Cagayan de Oro City (19 September) -- THE Federation of Coastal Barangays Fisherfolks Association of Cagayan de Oro (FEDCOBAFAC) has just opened its own monitoring, control and surveillance center in Barangay Gusa.

City Agriculturist Godorfredo Bajas said that the long-time dream of the fisherfolk in the city to have their own center is now realized as the P100,000 worth of building was inaugurated last September 08.

The center will serve as a meeting place for the fisherfolk in the meantime while the city government is still updating its facilities on monitoring and surveillance like radio, boats and other equipments for the protection of the Macajalar Bay and its resources.

Being the center of all coastal barangays from Bulua to Bugo, FEDCOBAFAC constructed the center in Gusa to easily monitor the city's coastal territory.

Along this, FEDCOBAFAC expressed its gratitude to City Mayor Constantino G. Jaraula for vigorously supporting the said project.

It was Mayor Jaraula who funded the said project when he was still the city's lone district representative to Congress.

In a related development, Bajas disclosed that the construction of the communication, information and technology center in San Roque, Lapasan will start anytime soon after purchasing all the necessary materials.

It is a two-storey building estimated to cost around P3.7 million, which will house the Bantay-Dagat communication facilities, a consumer store and multi-purpose function rooms for meetings and conferences.

With the development, Bajas said that the fishing industry in the city would raise their standards in terms of livelihood and protection of the city's aquamarine resources.

To date, FEDCOBAFAC has 18 member associations comprising the 13 coastal barangays of the city. (Cagayan de Oro City IO/PIA-MisOrOccCam i-Net) [top]
