CSC receives P1.5M from BFAR for inland fishery development

VIRAC, Catanduanes, Jan. 26 (PIA) -- Catanduanes State Colleges (CSC) has received an amount of P1.5 million from the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) for inland fishery development last week.

The program aims to enhance the fish production as well as to develop a sustained livelihood through technology infusion in inland fisheries development to enhance food security and alleviate poverty.

There are five proposed projects that will be located in the CSC campuses in Virac and Panganiban with extensions at Viga and Bagamanoc.

One of the proposed projects is the Small Holder and Small Farmer Integrated Rice-Fish-Chicken-Gabi Farming System which shall involve 50 farmers and fishermen.

Another is the small scale sustainable organic tilapia and growing of juvenile crabs with low-cost feeds in nylon nets which will be done at the CSC Fishpond in Palnab, Virac, Ctanaduanes Crab Center, CSC Panganiban and selected mangrove areas.

The third proposed project is the genetically-improved tilapia and some endemic species in selected rivers and streams of Catanduanes which was proposed for the culture of fast-growing tilapia species and native freshwater fish such as “cabonbon.”

Another is the “Tilapia Product Fortification, Packaging and Marketing,” which is intended to produce tilapia fish balls and siomai, ready to serve tilapia curry and other products.

Lastly, there shall be “Training and Advocacy for Sustainable Aquatic Ecosystem” wherein participants must undergo a 54-hour course equivalent to a three-unit course proposed to be accredited either at Bachelor or Master’s Level at CSC or Technical Education and Skills Development Authority.

Moreover, BFAR shall closely monitor the implementation of the projects to ensure that it would benefit all stakeholders and contribute to poverty alleviation, food security and job generation.

A total of 2,327 fishermen, farmers and local women will benefit from the projects. (AML/EAB/PIA-5)
