MetadataShow full item record
Seaweed farmers in Cebu are prepared to deal with the prevailing dry spell given past experience with extreme weather conditions, according to Seaweed Industry Association of the Philippines (SIAP) Chairman Maximo A. Ricohermoso. In an interview, Mr Ricohermoso said while the quality of seaweed output could be affected by the mild-drought, the industry has already developed techniques to minimize the impact. The weak El Niño episode, which is expected to last until June, has affected about 300 hectares of seaweed farms in the northern part of Cebu, particularly in Bantayan.
