Albay fisherfolks get BFAR livelihood assistance

LEGAZPI CITY -- The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) Bicol has recently turned-over some 50 livelihood assistance packages to fisher folk groups in Albay as part of the agency’s intervention program in ensuring sustainable livelihood among the fishing community in the province.



BFAR Bicol regional director Dennis V. Del Socorro said the assistance aims to improve the livelihood of fisher folks in the province and boost shared efforts in protecting, preserving and managing the sea as a source of life and aquatic resources.

Socorro led the ceremonial turn-over of 50 units of fiber glass non-motorized fishing boats, locally called sibidsibid at Fatima Fish port, Tabaco City.

He furthered that these units are also given in response to the request of Albay 1st District Congressman Edcel Lagman during Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol’s visit in Bicol on July this year.

The fisher folk beneficiaries come from the towns of Malilipot, Malinao, Bacacay, Sto. Domingo, Tiwi and Tabaco City.

Aside from the requested boats, the bureau will also distribute one unit of twin engine motorized boat and 100 units of bottom set gill nets as additional assistance.

Socorro further reminded the recipients to take great care of the assistance being extended to them by the government for their long-term usage. As counterpart, the fisherfolk-beneficiaries will shoulder the accessories of the sibidsibid boats and its maintenance.

Tabaco City Mayor Cielo Krisel Lagman-Luistro lauded the speedy action in granting their request. She also assured their commitment in helping the national government in its goal for sustainable fishing industry through strengthening the campaign against illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing in the municipal level.(PIA)
