CITY OF SAN FERNANDO A fishermen's group in San Marcelino town, Zambales province recently received from the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in Central Luzon a “lambaklad” or eco-friendly fish trap to increase their daily catch and boost their livelihood.
BFAR Regional Director Wilfredo Cruz said on Wednesday that the beneficiary of the P2-million worth "lambaklad" set is the Deep-Sea Fishing Association of Barangay La Paz.
The group's 30 members have already been trained on the technical and capacity-building support on the operation, management and maintenance of the eco-friendly fish trap.
"The lambaklad is a good project. It is environment-friendly. It will give more benefits to the fishers. This will provide more fish catch. The project's objective is to uplift the living conditions of the small-scale fisherfolk by providing them with livelihood intervention that is sustainable and environment-friendly," he said.
"Lambaklad," coined from the Filipino words “lambat” (net) and “baklad” (corral), uses a stationary huge fish trap laid down under the sea. It is a Japanese fishing technology adopted in the Philippines that catches fish through a process of non-harmful allurement.
The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources-Central Luzon recently released 65,000 tilapia and common carp fingerlings in the waters of Batacan and Nanguluan in San Clemente, Tarlac. This is in response to the request of the Municipal Agriculture Office for stock enhancement. The activity was carried out in accordance with the Balik Sigla sa Ilog at Lawa (BASIL) program which aims to both protect and enrich inland waters. (Photo by EL)
