LINGAYEN,Pangasinan— The provincial government awarded gill nets and fish processing kits amounting to P4.5M to 73 fisherfolk associations from 12 local government units (LGUs) in Pangasinan.

Held on May 1 at the Narciso Ramos Sports and Civic Center gymnasium, the recipients came from the towns of Agno, Anda, Bani, Infanta, Dasol, Sual, Binmaley, Lingayen, Labrador, San Fabian, Rosales and Alaminos City.

Urging the fisherfolks to take care of their livelihood, Gov. Espino encouraged the recipients to exert more effort in engaging on other income-generating activities in order to uplift their income and establish other opportunities to ensure better future for their family and for the fishing industry.

Noting that all recipients mostly came from coastal LGUs, the governor commended the town of Rosales which is not a coastal municipality but persistent enough to engage in fish processing particularly in tinapa (smoked fish) production. The lone association that was awarded with fish processing kit is the Rosales Tinapa and Vendors Association.

Gov. Espino said as that the LGU can serve as a good example for other inlands or agricultural towns to follow and emulate in the future.

In addition, he thanked BFAR led by Regional Director Nestor Domenden for the support it has been extending even during the previous administration when the project was launched two years ago. During the event, BFAR awarded 25 units of motorized bancas to the LGUs of Agno, Anda, Alaminos City, Binmaley, Lingayen and Labrador.

As such, Domenden pledged to continuously work hand-in-hand with the provincial government via various programs and projects that will help uplift the lives of marginalized fisherfolks.

The summary of 73 associations who received gill nets and fish processing kits from the provincial government were broken down as follows: Agno- 5; Alaminos City- 7; Anda- 14; Bani- 5; Infanta- 2; Dasol- 8; Sual- 1; Binmaley- 8; Lingayen- 10; Labrador- 7; San Fabian- 5; and Rosales-1.
