The Philippine Rural Development Project (PRDP) has allocated about P20 million for the development of the marine industry in a town in the island province of Tawi-Tawi. PRDP, in a statement last week, said the funds will help set up four post-harvest facilities in Tandubas, a key producer of seaweed and fish products as well as cassava and coconuts. The facilities are three warehouses with solar driers that will benefit 881 households, and a fish landing that will help 258 members of the village.
