1,000 kilos of seaweeds provided to plantations
TACLOBAN CITY – The latest activity of the Fishery Law Enforcement Team (FLET) was assisting in occupying areas for seaweeds in Sinapdan, Anibong Bay near Sinapdan Island. This operation already started last two months.
This project is in coordination with the city government and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources(BFAR) according to Noel Ligtas, FLET chief.
They use seaweeds for this project because of its demand; one of this is that it can be used as one of the ingredients in cosmetics, added Ligtas. The benefits of this is that it can add income to the fisher folk in establishing livelihood and this is in support of the city government.
The first release of seaweeds contains 1,000 kilos, and the type of these seaweeds is a “tay-tay” type. It will contain 10 meters per “tay-tay”. They use real straw in order to hold the seaweeds in the rope.
The planting of this seaweeds are not put together but one at a time. And they also give enough distance in putting the seaweeds because it will still grow. And after planting if it is ready to harvest they can just cut the straw and they can keep on harvesting. (Kathelyn Donceras, PIT intern)
