MetadataShow full item record
The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources’ oyster production expansion project has helped villagers in coastal towns of Buguey, Gonzaga and Sta. Teresita boost their daily income. Funded by the National Shellfish Development Program and from the regular agency funds, BFAR’s three-year massive establishment of 325 oyster culture raft demonstration and livelihood units has expanded and directly benefited residents of two more Cagayan towns recently and is seen to widen its coverage in the coming years. Oyster Project leader Nathaly Piñera said oyster production is no longer dominated by Buguey town alone but has expanded in the neighboring towns of Sta. Teresita and Gonzaga.
