BFAR designates May as Fisherfolk Month

Cebu City (5 May) -- The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR-7) in Central Visayas designates May as the Fisherfolk Month to recognize the important roles of the fisherfolks in our lives.

According to BFAR-7 regional director Andres Bojos, "we recognize the vital role of the fisherfolks in providing food to people and generating livelihood to those who are and have been involved either in fish capture, fish farming and fish processing."

Bojos added, one of the programs in celebration of Fisherfolk Month is the installation of Regional and Provincial Fisherfolk Directors in every region to run its national and regional offices.

"They shall act as national fisherfolk director and regional fisheries directors in order for them to have an opportunity to understand the workings of the bureaucracy," the BFAR director continued.

This is the fifth (5) year of implementation of this program, in coordination with the NGO's and Local Government Units.

Through this program, many of the fisherfolks' lives have been uplifted because they have been provided with the necessary needs to enhance their ability in fishing through, he added.

This year's BFAR-7 Regional Fisherfolk Director is Wilfredo Reyes, a fisherfolk from San Juan Siquijor and his first activity after his installation as 2010 regional fisherfolk director is to visit fishery projects in Bayawan, Bais, Bindoy and Ayungon, all in Negros Oriental.

This year's fisherfolk month theme is "Magsasaka at Mangingisda, Sama-samang harapin ang Hamon ng 'Climate Change' Gamit ang Makabagong Teknolohiya." (PIA-7/HFG) [top]
