Tinglayan fisherfolk get free 51,000 fingerlings

Tinglayan, Kalinga – Fish sufficiency in Tinglayan can now be assured as 104 committed and responsible fishpond owners were again identified as beneficiaries of the Special Area for Agricultural Development program of the Department of Agriculture -Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources.

Said fisherfolk were again given 51,500 fingerlings on Wednesday, November 3 as their reward for keeping a record of the venture output of the project they received last year, maintenance of their fishponds, and abiding with the guidelines of BFAR-Kalinga.

“Many fisherfolk, who recorded their harvest data on their notebook and submitted them here in the office, were given fingerlings as a reward for maintaining their fish pond and abiding by the set protocols,” Brenda Dona-al of the Office of the Municipal Agricultural Office said.

Dona-al said the fisherfolk should at least reach 50% of their expected harvest production.

Dona-al informed that for every 1 unit comprising a 200 square meters fishpond, the expected minimum harvested fish is 160 kilograms, however, she stressed that it is better if fishpond owners could maintain a minimum of 180 kilograms as this is an indication that the inputs and the fishpond were well-taken cared of.

The Tinglayan Municipal Information Office reports that each of the recipients received fingerlings ranging from 250 to 500, as the number of fingerlings given is based on the recipient’s fishpond area.

In addition, these fisherfolk received from MLGU Tinglayan and BFAR-Kalinga a set of feeds such as fry mash, pre-starter, and starter to help them in growing their acquired inputs.

Meantime, 17 new fisherfolk in the municipality were also provided fingerlings and feeds as third batch beneficiaries of the BFAR-SAAD program.
