Hermosa fisher folk get P600K worth of livelihood assistance
About P600,000 worth of livelihood inputs was distributed to fisher folk in Hermosa town in Bataan province, according to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR).
In a Philippine Information Agency report, BFAR Regional Director Wilfredo Cruz said this was in support to the municipal government’s Covid-19 pandemic recovery program.
The report said the agency awarded motorized boats and various types of fish nets for river and fish pond usage to the town’s fisherfolks that will help them maintain the production of water resources.
“Additional production of aquatic resources from the provided inputs will also generate jobs for the women of Hermosa through the added value of producing fishes such as deboning, bottling, and smoking thus empowering their economic ventures,” Cruz said.
The awarding of inputs to the recipients was led by BFAR National Director Eduardo Gongona.
During his speech, the official commended the Central Luzon fisher folk for their productivity, particularly in aquaculture.
