The packaging machine which will be used in dried fish processing of tilanggit – another term for dried tilapia, is part of the livelihood project of BFAR in the coastal areas dubbed as Tulong Kabuhayan para sa Kababaihang Mangingisda (TKKM).

TKKM Leader Celsa Maquiling said BFAR supports the DAR’s program in poverty alleviation especially in areas with agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs). “BFAR’s activity is regularly being conducted to increase the income of the farmer-beneficiaries by providing machineries to help them produce more products.”news reg 1 pix 2 sept. 15 2016
