TAWI-TAWI | June 30, 2021
Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Agrarian Reform Mohammad S. Yacob Ph. D, is eyeing the completion of the Regional Fishery Research Center within the term of Autonomous Region in Muslim and Mindanao (ARMM) and now the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) by addressing the pre-construction issues.
On Friday, June 30, 2021, Yacob said that several issues had been settled, and all necessary needs for improvement had been through for the project to proceed wholly.
He believes that the facility will help address and resolve issues and concerns associated with fisheries production. It will also provide new technologies to boost the volume and value of fishery products, including other aquatic resources – not only in Tawi-Tawi but the whole of Bangsamoro Region.
“Paunti-unti matatapos natin ang proyektong ito, hindi man ganon ka bilis ngunit sigurado akong malaki ang maitutulong nito sa ating mga kababayan.”
MAFAR-RFRC comprises a Seaweeds and fish health laboratory, an incubator for finfish and abalone, a training center, and a dormitory.
