LGU Tagum inaugurates new fish landing center

In support of the thriving fishing livelihood in Tagum, a newly built Community Fish Landing Center located at Barangay Liboganon was formally inaugurated and turned-over to its beneficiaries today.

Managed by the City Agriculture Office, the said facility will benefit fisherfolks of the Liboganon Integrated Fisherfolks Association as a location for landing their harvested fishes and other marine catches.

Equipment included in the turn-over ceremony are stainless steel fish stalls, freezing units, plastic fish basins, mechanical weighing scale, fish containers, and stainless steel carts.

The 3-million-peso worth Community Fish Landing Center will also serve as a skills training venue for the various fisherfolks organizations and associations.

Mayor Allan L. Rellon said that 70% of the profit gained from the operations of the fish landing center will be given to the fisherfolks association while only 30% will be for the LGU.

Furthermore, two motorized fiberglass fishing boats donated by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Regional Office XI were also turned over to the fisherfolks during the ceremony.

Fisherfolk recipients from the coastal barangay of Liboganon were happy and grateful for these newest addition to their fishing livelihood that will surely help them in earning their living.

Such establishment of the Community Fish Landing Center reflects the admirable implementation of the agenda for Agriculture and Fisheries Development under the EAGLE WINGS Program of Mayor Allan L. Rellon. Drex Rafols/CIO Tagum
