NOVELETA, Cavite -- The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) Region 4-A, led by Regional Director Lilian Garcia, has released funds for the building of a fisherman’s wharf or pandawan in Bgy. San Rafael IV, here.
Mayor Dino Reyes Chua received the budget worth P5.16 million from BFAR-R4-A reserved for the construction of fisherman’s hub or fishport.
The fishport will benefit residents who are mostly fishermen and dried fish makers in Bgy. San Rafael IV.
“The fisherman’s hub is for our fellow fishermen so they would no longer go to neighboring towns to peddle their fish catch,” said Chua.
“The soon-to-rise Noveleta fishport is closer to the market which is located along the national road. Sigurado ako maraming mamimili ng isda ang darayo dito,” he added.
Fishports or better known as the 'Bulungan' center of fishermen are also available in Navotas, Parañaque in Mtero Manila and in Rosario, Cavite.
