Fisherfolk turns to grouper cage culture

by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (3 November) -- A fisherfolk association in Roxas City has asked the support of experts to further promote the aquaculture of high value commercial fish species here.

Capiz Provincial Agriculturist Sylvia dela Cruz disclosed that they have tapped the expertise of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) officials based in Iloilo to provide scientific lectures on grouper culture.

Dela Cruz said that some 20 members of the Roxas City Aquaculture Association (RACA) attended a recently-concluded training on grouper cage culture here.

Topics on biology, nursery and grow-out culture of grouper, diseases, health management and nutrient requirements as well as water quality monitoring were discussed by Dr. Edgar Amar, Mr. Albert Gaitan, Mr. Nelson Golez and Mr. Sonny Pagador.

Dela Cruz explained that the training was organized to provide RACA members with alternative livelihood as well as promote sustainable high value fish culture in riverine areas of Roxas City.

"Grouper is a high value commercial fish and is considered as the most expensive fish in many restaurants," she said.

She added that grouper also presents business and investment opportunities as it is more than just a food, rather it equates jobs and livelihood to Capiceņos.

The RACA, which is headed by Efren Acan, is a newly organized fisherfolk group with 20 members and aims to play a collaborative role with the city government here in the sustainable management of coastal resources by helping themselves and their fellow fisherfolk in their barangay.

The association likewise seeks showcase the proper way of managing an alternative livelihood project such as grouper cage culture, dela Cruz said. (OPA/PIA) [top]
