Briefing and Turn-over of Crab Pots for the Blue Swimming Crab Gear Swap Program

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Region 7 (BFAR-7) conducted a briefing and turn-over of the Crab pots for the Blue Swimming Crab Gear Swap Program at Bohol Province.

The official turn-over of the crab pots for the gear swap was done in the Municipality of Talibon and Inabanga and it was grace by the BFAR-7 Regional Director ANDRES M. BOJOS and BFAR-7 Key Officials.

During the turn-over ceremony the existing gear commonly used by the crab fishers like lift net was swapped by a crab pot.

Director Andres Bojos clearly explained to the Fisherfolk that this program was developed to ensure protection, conservation and rational management of the Blue Swimming Crab (BSC) which was locally name as kasag or lambay.

RD Bojos added that the use of the crab pot as a recommended fishing gear will allow fishermen to return the gravid and juvenile crabs to the sea encouraging sustainable fishing, while increasing the fishing incomes.

The fishing gear has simple structure which can be handled easily on board in a small fishing boat with its 24 inches diameter, 2.5 inches mesh size, 4.5 inches valve diameter and 10 inches height. This gear should be deployed to areas with a depth of not less than 10 meters to avoid catching of juvenile stocks.

Monthly production report will be required from the respective LGUs.
