Dagupan’s ‘Bangus King’ leads way for others
MetadataShow full item record
If there is someone who deserves to be called “Bangus King” here, it is Eduardo Maramba, who belongs to four generations of milkfish growers. “My great grandfather, Franciso, my grandfather, Cipriano, and my father, Rufino, were all engaged in bangus culture, but it is only during my time when the industry blossomed into its present state,” says Maramba, 58, who owns 8 hectares of fishpond in this city, 5 ha in Alaminos City and 12 fish cages also in Alaminos. Maramba, who is accredited by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources’ Ilocos office as a fish grower, saw how the industry grew. He started helping his father tend the family’s fishpond when he was 12 years old.
