MetadataShow full item record
The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in the Ilocos region has assured that there is an ample supply of milkfish (bangus) for the region and other regions, despite the recent fishkill in the towns of Anda and Bolinao. BFAR Regional Director Nestor Domenden, in an interview during a fisheries forum on Wednesday, revealed that less than 1 percent of the region's total production for the year was lost due the fishkill. Domenden said the region is self-sufficient in bangus production and can continue supplying the needs of other areas, including Metro Manila, as the region is 127 percent sufficiency.
