Filipino Farmers Receive Tilapia for Backyard Fish Farms

In the Philippines, over 85,000 tilapia fingerlings were given away to local farmers for use in starting backyard tilapia food production, according to Prisciana C. Torres, AT/ Fisheries Coordinator of the Maasin City Agricultural Office.

At least 76 farmer-recipients were given from 500 to 2,000 tilapia fingerlings during the traditional Pabulhon, the city's agri and aqua fair. The event, held in August coincides with the twin celebrations of the 10th Charter Day celebration of Maasin Cityhood and city fiesta.
