Crablets released as Tagum boosts soft-shell crab production, aquaculture
MetadataShow full item record
Travelers entering Tagum City from Davao City, about 45 kilometers to the southwest, are greeted by a massive bronze-colored statue of a traditional bangka boat with fisherfolk aboard: a symbol of Tagum’s commitment to develop the aquaculture industry, even as it advances as the second urban hub in the Davao Region. One of the main products being fostered in the city, the capital of Davao del Norte, is the high-value soft-shell mud crab, found both in crab farms and in the Tagum’s protected mangroves.
