Seaweed farmers in this island town asked for support from the local government. They also want to get more involved in the growing tourism industry. Growing seaweeds, locally known as tambalang, has become one of the primary industries of Caluya, especially in Barangay Imba, the farmers said in a recent conference held by the Seaweed Industry Association of the Philippines. They said the seaweeds industry needs tourism programs that take care of nature and help sustain the continuous growing of tambalang.
