    No results found.

    This technology refers to the grow-out tilapias using modified farming practices in the farmer’s backyard as a means to augment farmer’s income and food requirements. It should be noted that tilapia is widely known and accepted food fish not only in land-locked areas, but also in coastal areas. Tilapia is specifically recommended as a candidate species because tilapias are hardy, fast growing and disease resistant species. They are also prolific and able to breed in captivity. They also feed low in food chain. Therefore an appropriate farmed species in flood and typhoon-prone areas in Bicol.

    The Philippines – Super Typhoon Goni and Typhoon Vamco 2020
    Urgent call for assistance
    2020

    Super Typhoon Goni and Typhoon Vamco made landfall in November 2020 in the Philippines, roughly following the same path as Typhoon Molave that hit just days earlier. Super Typhoon Goni severely affected Albay and Catanduanes provinces and Typhoon Vamco affected Cagayan and Isabela provinces, negatively impacting their economies, which were already reeling as a result of the coronavirus 2019 pandemic. The typhoons damaged rice, corn, abaca, and other high-value crops. They also destroyed boats, fishing gear, agricultural equipment, and other livelihood resources, significantly affecting those who are dependent on farming and fishing as their primary or secondary source of livelihood. As part of the United Nations appeal, and working closely with the government, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations aims to support affected farmers and fishers by helping them re‑establish their livelihoods and improving their food security and nutrition.
