24 fishery workers undergo boat repair, maintenance training

SUGBONGCOGON, Misamis Oriental (PIA)--The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) Provincial Fisheries Office of Misamis Oriental (PFO MisOr) held a 2-day training program on fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) boat repair and maintenance to enhance the capabilities of Fishery Extension Workers (FEW).

The newly appointed FEWs were stationed at the province's various local government units (LGUs) to support the LGUs in effectively repairing and maintaining FRP boats and ensuring their longevity and safety.

The training, which BFAR-PFO MisOr organized, aims to equip FEWs with the knowledge necessary to address boat repair needs in their respective communities.

"We are hoping that this training will capacitate you as FEW, and through this training, you can help our fisherfolks to fix and maintain their FRP boats," BFAR PFO MisOr OIC Arlene Novo said.

Participants received ample insights and an overview of the activity from Ronald Escobido, alternate OIC of the Capture Section. Esobido presented the equipment to be used for the repair and maintenance and introduced various repair materials, tools, and proper safety protocols.

Participants also gained valuable insights into identifying and addressing common issues that arise in FRP boats.

The FEWs expressed their enthusiasm and gratitude for the comprehensive training program, highlighting its practicality and relevance to their daily responsibilities. They emphasized that the newfound knowledge would enable them to better serve local fishing communities by providing efficient boat repair services and guidance.

The newly acquired skills of Misamis Oriental's FEWs in FRP boat repair are poised to positively impact the province’s fishing industry and ensure it will continue to thrive and contribute to the economic growth of Misamis Oriental. (BFAR-10/PIA-10/Misamis Oriental)
