Dimaporo launches largest mariculture zone in northern Mindanao

by Romy Sabaldan

Davao City (10 July) -- Governor Khalid Dimaporo has launched the largest mariculture zone in Northern Mindanao to provide job opportunities and a new means of livelihood for the people of Lanao del Norte, Lyndon Calica, Provincial Information Officer (PIO) said yesterday.

Containing an area of 1,372 hectares at the coastal town of Sultan Naga Dimaporo, the mariculture zone is expected to produce 10 tons of bangus every three months following the recent ceremonial stocking of 20,00 fingerlings.

Lanao del Norte Vice-Governor *Irma Umpa Ali, BFAR Regional Director David Ernacio, Provincial Board Member Casimiro Bagol and the town's municipal mayor Motalib Dimaporo witnessed the big event.

The young Dimaporo, grandson of the late Gov. Ali Dimaporo, also renewed his administration's commitment to environmental protection by signing a memorandum of agreement with the regional office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The agreement calls for the joint management of the timberlands of Lanao.

Dimaporo said he will ensure that there will be no more illegal cutting of trees in the province.

Provincial government officials and employees supported their governor's initiative by conducting a tree planting activity at Mount Tarongtong recently. (PIA XI) [top]
