The Department of Agriculture said it is seeking to release a roadmap for seaweed production covering the year 2017-2022 to help farmers establish a sustainable and competitive industry. Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol directed Undersecretary for Fisheries Eduardo Gongona to come up with a roadmap that will lay down all the programs of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources for a national seaweed program. National seaweed coordinator Irma Ortiz said BFAR wanted to bring back the country as the world’s leading producer of seaweeds such as Euchema and Kappaphycus.
