MetadataShow full item record
A group of researchers, fisherfolk, and Samarnons have launched a campaign to save Samar Crabs. Jesus Racuyal, director of the Center for Fisheries Aquatic Resources Research and Development (CFFARRD), one of the leaders of the campaign, has warned about the shrinking supply of blue swimming crabs (locally called karawasan) in the waters of Samar. Racuyal said the crabs fetch high prices because of its high nutritive value. Processed as crabmeat, it is one of Samar’s biggest export.
