The Department of Agriculture's Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (DA-BFAR) has just concluded its fisheries technology caravan, covering 10 regions and serving tens of thousands of small fishermen, pond operators and aquaculture entrepreneurs. Agriculture Secretary Leonardo Q. Montemayor said that with the caravan "we are giving flesh to the thrust of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to empower our poor countrymen, particularly small and marginal fishermen, providing them the means to engage in sustainable livelihood projects." Aside from the DA-BFAR technical personnel, the technical team was composed of experts and scientists from the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center's Aquaculture Department and the Department of Science and Technology's Philippine Council for Aquatic and Marine Research and Development
