Claver Fisherfolk Beneficiaries Receive 15 Motorized
  FRP Boats

What a great way to start the year! About 15 fisherfolk beneficiaries from the municipality of Claver in Surigao del Norte formally received last January 10, 2020, a total of 15 fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) boats from the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources-Caraga. The distribution was headed by Regional Director Visa Tan-Dimerin, and assisted by the Honorable Mayor Georgia Gokiangkee of Claver.

The turnover ceremony was also attended by the Members of the Sangguniang Bayan, Barangay Urbiztondo local officials, and BFAR-Caraga F/B Pagbabago focal person Restituto Bautista.

Aside from the 22-footer FRP boats, the recipients further received 7.5 horsepower diesel marine engines each. 

In her message, Mayor Gokiangkee said, "We need these programs for our fisherfolk's livelihood."

"To the beneficiaries, unta magmalampuson kamo sa inyo panginabuhi. Awhaga ang inyong kaubang mangingisda nga gamiton ang baroto sa legal nga pamaagi lamang," the Mayor added.

RD Dimerin, on the other hand, challenged the beneficiaries not to sell their boats and accessories because the 'Banka Ko, Gawa Ko' program is for livelihood – for increased food production or ‘ani’ and increased income or ‘kita’, as what Department of Agriculture Secretary William Dar is giving emphasis in the ‘New Thinking’ for Agriculture.

The Regional Director also assured the participants that BFAR-Caraga will continue to support the municipality of Claver through various training, and provide the beneficiaries fishing nets for better catch and income.

Mr. Bautista, the F/B Pagbabago focal person, conducted a 6-day hands-on training on the construction of FRP boats in Claver from November 26 to December 1 2019. BFAR provided the materials and trainers while the Local Government Unit of Claver provided the working area, water and electricity. The fisherfolk beneficiaries built the boats and are expected to maintain them.
