MetadataShow full item record
The fisheries industry in Buguey, Cagayan recently had a major boost with the soft opening of the fish hatchery in the town. Municipal Agriculturist Danilo Rumpon said that at present fish farmers in the area still have to order tilapia fingerlings from as far as Isabela. “The availability of fingerlings in our area can improve productivity and profitability of fish farmers by way of reduced transport costs and higher survival rate,” Rumpon stressed. Buguey, also known as a Crab Capital, is one of the major aquaculture areas in Region 02. The town has extensive areas of brackishwater fishponds and also a vibrant fish cage industry within the Buguey lagoon.
