Tilapia dispersal project a huge success in the Philippines

Farmers along the different tributaries of the Abra River are now harvesting tilapia as a result of the tilapia fingerlings dispersal project of Governor Eustaquio P. Bersamin. True to his promise to really help the farmers uplift their living condition by providing them income augmentation sources, Governor Bersamin had disposed thousands of fingerlings to the many fish-farmers in the province.

The tilapia fingerlings were grown in various fishpens and fish cages in barangays along the Sinalang River and the Abra River particularly in barangays Namanrabar and Malamsit in Penarrubia, Malita in Bangued, Balais in Lagangilang, and the different barangays of Bucay and Tayum.The tilapia fingerlings are home-grown as these are raised in the two hatcheries in the province - Kirmay Fishery in Brgy. San Marcial, San Isidro; and at Brgy. Malamsit, Penarrubia.

The Kirmay fishery is the old fishfarm in the province where fingerlings are produced and operated by the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPAG). The Malamsit hatchery, on the other hand, is private-owned but supervised by the OPAG. Read more ...
