BANGUED, Abra (PIA) –- The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) – Provincial Fishery Office
distributed a total of 350,000 pieces of tilapia fingerlings to fisherfolks in Abra who are adversely affected by the recent Tropical Storm  Maring.

“This assistance will ensure that our fisherfolks will restore their fish production after experiencing loss due to “Maring,” Daguio said.  
 
Most of the fisherfolks affected were those with their ponds situated near the riverbanks.  
 
Some 200,000 fingerlings were initially distributed for the batch from the municipalities of Pilar, Villaviciosa, La Paz, Bucay, San Isidro, Dolores, Danglas, San Juan, Manabo, Lagangilang and Langiden.

Another 150,000 were distributed to the second batch of fisherfolks from Malibcong, Licuan-Baay, Danglas, La Paz, Boliney, Pilar, Bucloc, Daguioman, Boliney, Bucay, San Juan, Bangued, Lagayan, Dolores, Langiden, San Quintin, Pidigan, Sallapadan and Lagangilang.
 
PFO Abra personally delivered the fingerlings to far-flung municipalities such as Sallapadan, Bucloc and Daguioman while the 24th Infantry Battalion delivered the fingerlings for Malibcong.
 
The provision of assistance is based on the submitted master list of affected fish farmers. (JDP/CAGT – PIA CAR, Abra)
