Farming the sea in Lanao Del Norte
MetadataShow full item record
Government projects that showcase practical opportunities whether in farming or fisheries, will always have positive results. Just like the mariculture park project in Lanao del Norte which was launched in 2010 in Panguil Bay. There, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) demonstrated fish farming in the ocean with circular and square cages for culturing bangus and other species. The first cycle showcased the stocking of 20,000 bangus fingerlings in one circular cage with a diameter of 8 meters. Bangus grows well in sea water. In four months of culture, and spending P250,000 on feeds, they harvested eight tons. Half of the harvest was sold to employees of the government at a discounted price of P110 per kilo whereas the other half was sold through the ordinary market at P120 per kilo.
