21 fishpond operators to benefit from aquaculture trainings

At least twenty one fishpond operators shall benefit from Ridge to Reef aquaculture livelihood trainings. These beneficiaries shall be given technical assistance to improve fishpond yields and income by employing cost-effective and environment-friendly aquaculture technologies. The beneficiaries were recommended by local government officials from all the coastal municipalities covered by the project.

Project expert team members Prof. Valeriano Corre, Jr. and Len R. Garces inspected the candidate fishponds and shortlisted the beneficiaries based on their willingness and capacity to participate in the program. The shortlisted fishponds total at least thirty five hectares.

The beneficiaries shall be provided hands on training from pond preparations and operations to harvest and yield transportation. They shall be provided technical trainings on maintenance and monitoring to ensure higher harvest yields as well as financial management..

The trainings shall cover monoculture and polyculture of freshwater prawns, tilapia, milkfish, siganid, and grouper, as well as searanching of sea cucumbers and seaweed farming.

Ridge to Reef partnered with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (Region X) for the aquaculture trainings, with the latter pledging to supply fish fries needed for aquaculture development.
