BFAR launch 55th Conservation Month
by Maria Aprila W. Cruz

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources launched the 55th Fish Conservation Month this September with the theme, “Kapag karagatan ng munisipal ay inalagaan, sasagana ang yamang dagat.”

BFAR-Cordillera Director Milagros Morales said the celebration aims to encourage fisherfolks, local government unit partners, and other stakeholders to take care of municipal waters to protect and conserve aquatic resources and, in turn take care of the fishing industry.

“We want to instill awareness not only among BFAR employees, not only among the different government agencies, not only among the fisherfolks but among all the stakeholders on the importance of their responsibility and most importantly their commitment and accountability towards the management of these resources,” she said.

During the launching program, Assistant Regional Director Lois June Fermin presented the Balik Sigla sa Ilog at Lawa project where fingerlings are dispersed in the region’s inland waters to rehabilitate, restore, and revive the physical conditions of inland water resources.

Mary Tauli, Aquaculturist II of BFAR, also briefed the participants on the Oplan Sagip Ludong Project while lawyer Samuel Gallardo of the Department of Trade and Industry lectured on the Price Act and Consumer Act.

Under Proclamation 176, s.1963, the Fish Conservation Week is celebrated every third week of October but President Rodrigo Duterte issued Proclamation 316 declaring September as the National Maritime and Archipelagic Nation Awareness Month, which amended Proclamation 176 transferring the observance from October to September to synchronize it with the International Coastal Clean-Up Day and the National Maritime Day.

BFAR Fisheries and Post-Harvest and Marketing Section OIC-Chief Precy Maramba said that there will be a regional micro, small, and medium enterprise exhibit from Sept. 17 to 21 at the BFAR regional office.

Maramba said the event serves as a venue for fish processors and producers from the region to showcase and promote their various fishery products in order to empower and motivate entrepreneurs/processors/producers to actively participate in the development of the fishery industry by responsibly using fishery resources for sustainable growth and development of a growing population.
