Lambaklad First Catch

Mikabat ug 149.8 kilos nga lain-lain na klase sa isda ang nakuha sa mga mananagat sa ilang unang ariya gamit ang Lambaklad fishing net karong adlawa, Pebrero 21, 2019. Ang mga manangat nagsugod ug ariya sa pukot mga alas singko sa buntag sa kadagatan nga duol sa Punta, Malocbaloc sa Barangay Agujo. Human sa tulo ka oras, alas otso sa buntag, gibira na sa mga mananagat ang lambaklad net.

Nahimugso ang P2.65 million nga Lambaklad project tungod sa pagtinabangay sa BFAR ug LGU Daanbantayan pinaagi sa paningkamot sa atong mayor Hon. Vicente A. Loot nga personal gayud nga mihangyo sa BFAR aron mahatagan ug bag-o nga pamaagi sa pangisda ang atong mananagat. Kini human niya masayran ang resulta sa survey sa tulo nga dagkong kadagatan sa Daanbantayan—Tanon Strait, Visayan Sea, ug Camotes Sea–nga mipadangat sa haom nga pamaagi sa pangisda sa atong mga dagat.

The lambaklad fishing net, which is 200 meters long by 40 meters wide, is set to benefit 4 fishermen’s associations namely, Bakhawan Fishermen Asssociation, San Vicente Kauswagan Suba Fishermen Association. San Roque Livelihood Fishermen Association, and Agujo United Fishermen Association.

The lambaklad, derived from the Filipino words “lambat “ (net) and “baklad” (corral), is an environmentally friendly fishing method that uses a stationary huge fish trap laid down at about 35 meters under sea.
