PHILIPPINES - It takes a thirty-minute ride to reach Bulong, Sta. Barbara where awesome-sized tilapia, cultured in four thousand-meter-wide ponds are seen and if you have permission, eaten. Upon reaching the area, it made me realize that indeed, Pinoys have so much to be proud of. One is our very rich seafood resource--something that Japanese, who love to eat raw fish meat can be jealous of. This tilapia farm is called the Technological Outreach Station (Tos), pilot area of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (Bfar). Edna Janeo, chief of the Tos, said that the station primarily aims to augment the lives of their fellowmen through providing them with something they could earn from at no monetary expense at all. They provide free fingerlings to farmers who have potential grower ponds in their area. Source: Sun Star
