BFAR braces vs climate change

Dipolog City (18 February) -- With the onslaught of El Niņo wrought by global warming, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) has come up with certain programs to cushion the impact of the weather problem on the fishery sector.

BFAR Director Malcolm I. Sarmiento Jr. said that with the climate change, "the stocks in the wild would really be affected, resulting in the changes in the spawning time of fishes and emergence of mutant species."

"To mitigate the impact of climate change on the fisher communities, BFAR has encouraged the fishermen to go into aquaculture or fish farming," Sarmiento stressed.

As global warming adversely affects the stocks in the wild, the fishermen should no longer rely on fish hunting according to Sarmiento.

In a related development, BFAR has given the provincial government a grant of P40 million for the construction of a cold storage facility in Dapitan City. Once completed, this will ensure constant supply of fish in the locality and more especially for the manufacturers of bottled sardines.

Sardines manufacturers usually run out of fish supply during lean months from June to November. Abundant catch usually happens during summer.

With the cold storage facility, Sarmiento expressed optimism that the bottled sardine manufacturers in the province can have their production all year round. (PIA-ZN) [top]
