Good day everyone!
Thank you for visiting our official website of BFAR Region VII.
The thrust of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources is improving fisheries productivity within ecological limits and empower stakeholders towards food and security, inclusive growth, global competitiveness and climate change adaptation. As one of the top 10 fishing nations in the world, the present administration focuses on further improving resource protection through intensified law enforcement in order to achieve food security as a result of sustainable fisheries production.
BFAR has been creating measures and intensive law enforcement training programs to eradicate Illegal, Unreported (IUU) fishing. For food security and productivity, BFAR focuses on five (5) potential fishery commodities such as: Bangus, Tilapia, Shrimp, Shellfish and Seaweeds. For the next years, we envisioned the country to sustained marine resources for our posterity and providing sufficient needs for the present.
