Zambales fishers won't take Chinese bait: fishermen impressed but hesitant to use aquaculture technology from China
MetadataShow full item record
A five-day visit to China in January failed to convince some leaders of Zambales and Palawan fishing communities to accept aquaculture technology being offered by the Chinese government. The fishermen and BFAR officials, led by Central Luzon Director Wilfredo Cruz, visited a fishery station, a marine cage culture farm, a fish market and a tilapia farm in Guangdong province. They met with Liu and other Chinese officials who organized workshops as part of the visit, which took place from Jan. 9 to 13.
