Province of Davao Oriental – The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Regional Office handed over to the Provincial Government a total of P10 million cash assistance for the implementation of the provincial government’s Deep Sea Tuna Fishing Project.

The check was personally handed over by DILG OIC Regional Director Wilhelm M. Suyko, CESO IV to Governor Corazon N. Malanyaon last December 26, 2014 at the Provincial Governor’s Office, Capitol Building, City of Mati.

The DILG said the allocated budget will be used to acquire new motorized ‘banca’ that will directly benefit more than 380 fishermen in the typhoon Pablo-hit areas of Boston, Cateel, Baganga and Caraga.

In order to cover more recipients who could benefit from the project, Rotchie M. Ravelo, Provincial Agriculture Office Department Head, said that each boat will be shared by two beneficiaries who are related or kin.

In Boston, a total of 42 units will be given to 84 fishermen in the villages of Carmen, Sibahay, Poblacion and Cabasagan. A total of 108 fishermen in Cateel will also receive 54 units in barangays San Vicente, San Antonio, Mainit, Alegria, Santa Felomina, San Rafael, Poblacion and Baybay.

The most number of beneficiaries is in Baganga with a total of 132 fishermen who will receive 66 units in barangays Lucod, Central, Lambajon, Saoquigue, Kinablangan, Ban-ao, Dapnan and San Victor. Sixty fishermen will also receive 30 units in Caraga, particularly in Barangay Manorigao, Poblacion, Sta. Fe, Santiago, San Jose and San Luis.

The Deep Sea Tuna Fishing project was approved for funding by sets of Memorandum of Agreements between DILG and the Provincial Government upon resolved by the Sangguniang Panalalawigan Resolution No. 14-141-07-2014.

Considering the province’s vast resources in fishery and marine and having the longest coastline in the region of 513.2 kms, the provincial government poises this sector as another emerging industry with vast potential of spurring economic growth in these coastal towns, thus, would highly benefit rural fisherfolks.

With this project, the provincial government believes that aside from helping fisherfolks get back on their feet after the past disaster, this project will also further boost their means of income. By Van Jorain O. Rufin, Photos by Eden Jhan Licayan.
