Monday, March 18, 2013
MACABEBE -- The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) has provided assistance to the fishermen in Masantol town.
BFAR Assistant Regional Director Lilian Garcia led the distribution of four motor engines and 100 fishing nets in a turnover ceremony held at Colegio De San Lorenzo, Masantol town.
Garcia said the municipalities of Macabebe and Masantol are considered the main sources of fish supply in the province, as most residents are engaged in fishing.
She told the fishermen that if they need anything, they have to write a letter addressed to the bureau’s office so that a study would be conducted in order to help them.
She said there is a need to examine water and soil in the two municipalities to ensure that the industry is not affected with the changing environment.
"Ang ahensiya po namin ay pweding magbigay tulong para pag aralan ang tubig at lupa dito para matiyak natin na wala tayong problema sa ating mga inaani dito," Garcia said. (Herbert P. Mapiles)
