Isabela State University’s Fisheries Program thru its Cagayan Valley Freshwater Fisheries Center (CVFFC) continues to empower communities in the fisheries sector.

In the recent activity of CVFFC, around 150 women processors benefited from the project of CVFFC led by its Center Director Dr. Isagani P. Angeles, Jr. thru “Production of Smoked Tilapia and Tilanggit for COVID-19 Affected Communities in Southern Isabela”.

The trainees are members of women’s associations in the municipalities of Santiago, Echangue, and Ramon. The beneficiaries were able to produce smoked tilapia and tilanggit flavored with lemongrass. To date, a total of 3,375 kg of smoked tilapia and 2,025 kg tilanggit were produced.

The status and project report were evaluated and visited by Inland Aquatic Resources Research Division – IARRD of the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARRD) on August 9-11, 2022 with IARRD team led by Dr. Adelaida T. Calpe, Dr. Cynthia Almazan, Mr. Wilfredo C. Ibarra, and Ms. Janet Jane Valguna.

This project is under the GALING-PCAARRD Pagkain at Kabuhayan sa Pamayanan.
