Fish cages for rent – a new concept
Butuan City (21 November) -- In response to the call to provide support and to better the lives of our fishfarmers, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources – Caraga introduces a new concept of helping them out.
This is a new project conceptualized by BFAR-Caraga to empower our fisherfolk and lessen their dependence on government grants, to increase their income, enhance their living and to provide continuous supply of fish in the locality. This project will first be established in Dapa, Siargao Island and will soon be replicated to other areas in the region.
A total of 10 fish cages (8m x 8m x 5m) size will be established with a stocking density of 5,000 pieces of bangus fingerlings which is to be shouldered by the lessee. The cages will be alienated into different cluster compose of four cages each.
The targeted beneficiaries are the fisherfolks and fisherfolk associations in the locality. The projected rental is equivalent to the total cost of the established cage to be paid in an installment basis. (BFAR-13/PIA-Caraga) [top]
