In light with the celebration of the 10th Lang-ay Festival in Bontoc, Mountain Province, the Post-Harvest Section of Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Cordillera conducted simultaneous fish processing demo and training to fisherfolk, farmers, and housewives last April 3.

The training included different processes of fish value adding that can be used as a source of income.

This also brought people from far-flung barangays to acquire information on the beneficial value on the importance of having fish and its byproducts on their daily meals.

“We are very fortunate for granting our request to conduct this demo and training,” said Provincial Agriculturist John Likigan.

“This activity is very important to the needs of the people in the province.”

The demo and training involved processing of fish siomai, fish turon, fish deboning, and tilanggit using tilapia as main ingredient. This was conducted by the staff members of Fisheries Post-Harvest and Marketing Division of BFAR-CAR.

Each of the six organizations received 200 kilos of fresh marketable tilapia and 10-kilo capacity weighing scale as part of implementation of Barangay Fish Terminal projects. These organizations are Bangan RIC, Beekeepers’ Association of Sagada, Payag-co Fisherfolks Association, Samoki Farmers’ Association, and Caluttit Farmers Association.

The Barangay Fish Terminal is part of the bureau’s mandate in providing alternative livelihood to fisher folk organizations in the region where initial supply of fresh marketable fish are provided to the identified organization.

To date, the BFAR-CAR continuously provides fish and fishery products to the different organizations in the region as part of its BFT projects.

Meantime, awarding of the BFT project is in line in the 2nd quarter of the year to the identified recipients.
