"Butsogā" fingerlings distributed in NVizcaya fish sanctuaries

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya (19 October) -- "At least 10,000 "Butsogā" or carp fingerlings were released to various fish farmers and sanctuaries in the province Tuesday (October 17) with the observance of Fish Conservation Week.

Alex Domingo, Agriculture and fishery officer of the provincial agriculture office here said the fish would be able to breed from 10,000 to 15,000.

The fish needs to live from 8 to 10 months to be able to produce its breed.

The supply is part of the 150,000 tilapia fingerlings distributed earlier which constitute the 1.5 million fingerlings of assorted fish distributed by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) regional office in line with the Fish Conservation Week observance.

"Butsogā" has become endemic in rivers here due to the massive and indiscriminate fishing of its kind even when they are still small. "This is the reason why we are running out of this type of fish because we do not wait for their proper age before catching them," Domingo said.

The fish specie were released in 7 sanctuaries or breeding areas in the towns of Aritao, Bambang, Bayombong, Solano, Quezon, Bagabag and Diadi which are co-managed by the local government units concerned. A fish sanctuary is manned by at least two fish wardens. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
