BFAR Provincial Fisheries Officer Neil Encinaries said the activity is in partnership with the Fish Right Program of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

“It aims to add value to caught fish while promoting sustainable fishing practices and economic empowerment among coastal communities,” he added.

The training included hands-on exercises wherein beneficiaries gained skills to improve product quality and create economic opportunities in their community.
