Eel production in Region 2 on the rise
MetadataShow full item record
Cagayan Valley is experiencing an increase in eel production that can allow the region to ship more to the world market and increase supply to the domestic market. Meanwhile, there is an initiative in Butuan City in Agusan del Norte backed by Japanese technology to produce eels commercially. According to Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) Region 2 Director Jovita Ayson, there are five eel species in Cagayan Valley and there are efforts to conserve natural eel stocks to assure continuous harvests of eels. The increasing catch of eel in Region 2 is a welcome development because according to a Taiwanese expert, the harvest of worldwide wild eel harvest has been declining since the 1970s.
