LGU and fisherfolk associations in San Fernando, Masbate unite to sustain their Marine Protected Area
Before the sun rises up, you can hear the grating sounds of the rake and soft chatting of the residents of Brgy. Resureccion while cleaning the shoreline of San Fernando. They gather the trashes and wastes carried away by the water current and segregate these properly in a compost pit. Sharp stones are collected and arranged at the corner of the coast.
“Dapat malinis an dagat para mag damo pa an mga isda kag mas maayo an tubo san amon mga seaweeds” (The coast should always be clean in order to ensure abundance of fishes and healthy growth of seaweeds), said Mr. Noel Bergantin, Adminstrative Aide IV/Fisheries Coordinator.
