Inauguration & Turn-over Ceremony of CFLC

BFAR-7 conducted an Inauguration and Turn-over ceremony of the Community Fish Landing Center in San Juan, Siquijor last June 29, 2016. 

The inauguration and turn-over ceremony was led by the BFAR-7 Regional Director Andres M. Bojos which was assisted by the Assistant Regional Director Allan L. Poquita, San Juan Governor Zaldy S. Villa and Mayor Wilfredo Capundag Jr. 

Currently the Department of Agriculture - Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (DA-BFAR) is establishing at least 252 community fish-landing centers (CFLCs) nationwide as part of their efforts to reduce poverty among the fisherfolk.
The CFLC is under the Targeted Actions to Reduce Poverty and Generate Economic Transformation in the Fishery Sector Program (TARGET) with the help of Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA) and National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC). 

The construction of CFLCs is a government initiative to improve conditions at fishing communities with high poverty incidence in the different Regions and it aims to reduce post-harvest losses from 25 percent to 18 percent or even lower.
The facility will be opened as a venue for skills training on disaster-resilient fisheries-based livelihood and resource management such as monitoring fish catch and stock assessment.

Each CLFC is costing Php 2.85 million and will serve to house post-harvest equipment and tools that enable fisherfolk to preserve the good quality of their fish and fishery products, which they could sell for higher prices. Local consumers will also benefit from the fish landing centers as they will have better access to safe and quality fishery commodities. 
In BFAR Region 7, the construction of the fish landing centers are still ongoing in Bantayan, Cebu; Pilar and San Francisco, both of Camotes Island, Cebu and San Juan in Siquijor,

CFLCs and other interventions under TARGET will promote inclusive growth among coastal communities and alleviate poverty among Fisherfolk.
