Hope springs eternal for seaweed farmers
MetadataShow full item record
In the beautiful and idyllic island of Maniguin in Antique, seaweeds are equivalent to life like the coconut is to farmers. With summer just around the corner, seaweed farmers are wondering if their replanted "seaweed of life" floating in an area of 50 hectares can fully recover and sustain their livelihood after super typhoon "Yolanda" totally washed out the seaweed farms on November 8, 2013. The seaweeds serve as the primary source of income of this island-barangay of about 828 residents who sell the commodity to buyers with and outside the province.
