This was addressed during a dialogue with the fisherfolks last July 7 regarding protection of breeding sites of Kapis shells in Tigbauan. Barangay Namucon in Tigbauan is one of the four breeding sites of Kapis shells in the first district of Iloilo - a project of SEAFDEC-AQD (Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department) in collaboration with the local government units (LGUs)
