local.seafdecaqd.extractCPAR is a location-specific research program that focuses on improving farming system technologies for micro agro-climatic environments within a municipality or a province. It merges research initiatives and the involvement of fisherfolk-cooperators in the implementation of projects in various regions of the country. The project was initially implemented in two barangays in Abra: Tubtuba and Dilong with 70 fish farmers as project cooperators. In Tubo, Abra, aquaculture is a promising industry while tilapia (along with carp, eel, gobi) is commonly being cultured. Given the difficulty of buying fish, due to the area’s remoteness and the land barriers surrounding the community, people are learning to culture commercially demanded fishes like tilapia. They grow tilapia both as a source of food and as a livelihood, making aquaculture an important sector in the municipality.en
