MetadataShow full item record
As a form of assistance to Typhoon Pablo- stricken communities of Davao Oriental and Compostela Valley, DOST’s Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARRD) provided funding to help five barangays learn seaweed farming as an alternative source of livelihood. The details of the project was presented by the project leader, Cyril Tom Ranara of the Davao del Norte State College (DNSC) during the Seaweed Fiesta held at the Passig Islet, Bato, Santa Cruz, Davao del Sur held in November last year. Aside from the trainings, the project also ensured that seaweed farms and seaweed seedling banks were established. Employing the raft culture method in establishing the farms, the technology ensures a two month-growing period before harvest.
