Fish yield in Cagayan Valley up in 1st quarter

by Ben Moses Ebreo

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (May 7) -- The Bureau of Agricultural Statistics (BAS) said fisheries production in Cagayan Valley region increased for the first quarter this year.

BAS report showed that the region posted a production of 18,873 metric tons for the first quarter of 2010 which is higher by 518 metric tons or 2.82 percent growth compared to last year's production for the same period.

The growth was attributed to the increase in aquaculture production specially in Isabela province since fish farmers were forced to harvest their stocks early to avoid the onslaught of the dry spell.

The province of Isabela garnered the highest growth rate with 31.62 percent with Quirino province at 19.21 percent.

Moderate growth was also noted among commercial and municipal sub-sectors because it triggered "more fishing efforts as enabled by favorable weather and shallow water level in inland communal bodies of water," the BAS report also bared.

The provinces of Cagayan, Nueva Vizcaya and Batanes on the other hand, showed a decline in production with 0.24 percent, 16.19 percent and 10.52 percent respectively due to the effects of flooding in the last quarter of 2009 and the damages wrought by the El Nino phenomenon. However, Cagayan accounted for the biggest share of the production with 15,313 metric tons, with Isabela at 2,590 metric tons, Nueva Vizcaya at 368 metric tons and Batanes at 336 metric tons and Quirino at 265 metric tons.
