Local Fishers’ Group Gets Financial Assistance

The Buluangan-Sumulog Fisherfolks Association received financial aid of P200,000 from the city government of San Carlos last Jan. 15, 2018.

San Carlos City Mayor Gerardo P. Valmayor Jr. turns-over the financial assistance check to
Buluangan-Sumulog Fisherfolks Association represented by its treasurer Ms. Elenita Legaria
last Jan. 15, 2018 at City Mayor 's Office.

The group’s treasurer Elenita Legaria stated that said amount will be used to buy the necessary fishing nets for the 9 members of their group who used to catch fish with the prohibited types of fishing nets which could include small fish and cause destruction to the sea environment.

City Mayor Gerardo P. Valmayor Jr told the beneficiaries to always observe the legal way and safe fishing methods because by any means everybody must contribute to the healing of the environment both land and sea. He also suggested to them to coordinate and inform the Cooperatives and Livelihood Development Office for other programs beneficial to their group so the city government could extend help again.
