The governor of this province is encouraging the fishermen of this town to try out pearl oyster farming. Governor Leopoldo Petilla in his speech as the guest speaker at the “Pista Sa Nayon-Inter-Agency Party,” part of the San Miguel Day Celebration Sunday night, said pearl oyster farming is highly profitable, based on the experience in Barangay Pinarigusan, one of the coastal villages of this town. Petilla said the fishermen who are training to grow wing blister oyster pearls will soon harvest the pearls which they cultured recently.
