New developments to boost Aurora fish production
MetadataShow full item record
Fisherfolk in Aurora can expect a boost in the province's fishery output with the new developments that can further enhance fish production, especially in the areas covered by the 321hectare Casiguran Mariculture Park. Last February, Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala together with the officials from the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) and the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) inaugurated the Multi-Species Hatchery, the Blue Crab Breeding and Hatchery, and the Seaweed Tissue Culture Laboratory in Baler; the Multi-Species Nursery in Dipaculao; and also launched the P10million fish cage project in the Casiguran Mariculture Park which will benefit fishermen in the whole province. The Casiguran Mariculture Park has several components covering the entire production chain Â from broodstock to nursery up to processing plants. The recent developments, according to BFAR, will increase fisheries production in Aurora by at least fifty percent and will contribute to fish sufficiency not only in Aurora but in nearby provinces as well such as Nueva Ecija, Nueva Viscaya, Quirino and Isabela.
