Nagcarlan aquaculture project monitoring in place

Field Agricultural Extension Services-Office of the Provincial Agriculturist
September 25, 2020
 

A few weeks after the awarding of tilapia fingerlings to fishpond owners in Nagcarlan, Laguna, the monitoring team of the Field Agricultural Extension Services-Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (FAES-OPAg) visited the fishponds on September 23, 2020 to monitor the progress of aquaculture projects in the municipality.

Headed by FAES Aquaculturist I/Provincial Fishery Coordinator Mr. Ernesto Jara together with Ms. Maricel Gamara and Ms. Amelita Romanes both from the Municipal Agriculture Office of Nagcarlan, the team initially visited the backyard fish farm of Mr. Ronaldo Romanes who was awarded with 1,500 tilapia fingerlings.

They proceeded afterwards to Brgy. Silangang Napapatid where Mr. Luis Cabatic, another recipient of approximately 1,500 tilapia fingerlings, converted his piggery into a concrete fish tank for the aquaculture project.

In Brgy. Ilayang Palina, on the other hand, Agriculture Committee Chairman Councilor Pablo Marasigan and his barangay were awarded with 19,920 tilapia fingerlings in January and March of this year.

According to Mr. Marasigan, the fingerlings helped them a lot during the lockdown period, serving as an alternative source of livelihood as well as augmenting food supply for their families, since most members of the community are jeepney drivers who are unable to work during the quarantine.

Pleased with the current status of the said projects, Mr. Jara gave the recipients more suggestions on how to increase production not just with culturing tilapia but also with fingerlings management.
