TECHNO-DEMO ON FISH PROCESSING, CONDUCTED BY THE MAFAR UNDER FishCORAL PROJECT
The Fisheries, Coastal Resources and Livelihood (FishCORAL) project of the MAFAR carried out a techno-demonstration on fish processing with value addition in Barangay Meti, Datu Blah Sinsuat, one of the coastal municipalities in Maguindanao, on June 23, 2020.
With 17 participants, the activity was particularly conducted for the Meti Fishing Household Association based in the municipality.
The techno-demo showcased the good handling of fish that gives numerous benefits to fishermen, processors, and retailers as consumers always demand and are willing to pay much for fish with premium quality.
Aimed at ensuring the effective implementation of the livelihood awarded though the FishCORAL Project, lecture and actual demonstration of different methods of fish processing and the proper operation of vacuum sealer were done by the team from the MAFAR for the People’s Organization (PO).
Through the interactive discussions, the female and male fisherfolk understood the significance of proper processing and marketing strategies to ensure consumer acceptance and increased profit.
