The said activity aims to promote the industry of fishery in the province and to prove that fishes like milk fish or bangus and tilapia from Bulacan are safe for consumption.

“Gagawin natin ito bilang tulong sa mga mangingisda sa lalawigan na malinawan ang mga mamimili na hindi sila dapat matakot kumain ng mga isdang galing sa atin, at malaon ay magiging maganda rin ang epekto nito para sa mga Bulakenyo,” said Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado.

The program will kick off through an intermission number to be followed by the welcome remarks of Vice Gov. Daniel Fernando. After this, an audio-visual presentation about the proper way of breeding the fishes particularly bangus, will be shown, starting from the preparation of fish ponds until it reaches the market.

Also, Gov. Alvarado and the guest of honor will give their messages to further emphasize the importance of fishery in the province. These will be followed by the oath taking of the members of Integrated Services for the Development of Aquaculture (ISDA).

According to Jim Valerio, Provincial Administrator, one of the highlights of FISHtahan sa Bulacan is the grilling of bangus and tilapia which will be eaten simultaneously by the guests and other attendees.

“Bilang kasiyahan, magkakaroon tayo ng raffle para sa lahat ng dadalo at bangus ang magiging premyo,” Valerio added.

Officials from the national agencies like DTI, DepEd, DILG and COA, owners of consignacion, restaurant and catering, supermarkets, fishpond operators, feeds manufacturers, cooperatives of market vendors and PGB employees, are expected to grace the event. ###
