Pangasinan ‘Lakbay Aral’ launched

DAGUPAN, Pangasinan — Students from the Fisheries Field School 2022 from Barangay San Pablo in Hagonoy, Bulacan launched a “lakbay aral” at the coastal barangay of Bonuan Binloc here.

In cooperation with the National Fisheries Development Center of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, the “lakbay aral” is part of the academe’s thrust to improve the fishing sector of Bulacan before the students’ graduation on 19 October.

A total of 33 FFS students took part in the event as they roamed the 37-hectare facility, witnessing the actual operation of the hatchery.

The students also witnessed the meticulous caring for the various fingerlings of fishes such as bangus, ulang, seabass and saline tilapia that the BFAR distributes to various fisherfolk in the country.

The agency, meantime, expressed its gratitude to the initiative and support of the Provincial Agriculture’s Office of Bulacan and the Municipal Agriculture’s Office of Hagonoy in providing much needed knowledge in the fishing technology to fisherfolk.

The FFS is focused on the use of Greenwater Technology wherein fisherfolk can raise shrimps and tilapia in one fishfarm that is rich in microbes that are natural food for the said stock.

With the help of the aforementioned technology, buying of fish feed would lessen, providing a higher input of earning for the fisherfolk.
