MetadataShow full item record
After the success of its mariculture park, the Island Garden City of Samal (Igacos) will embark on developing lobster farms in Bakak town for its food security marine culture development program. "This is our next innovation," Igacos mayor Rogelio Antalan said adding the project is still in the drawing board. "This project (mariculture park) has become an alternative to deep-sea fishing," said Mr. Antalan, adding that locators, including the BFAR, have started harvesting from the fish cages. Mr. Antalan said the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center ensured that the project will not endanger the environment.
