The LGU noted a 4 percent increase in food production last year by initiating interventions like seaweed farming, tilapia, livestock and poultry production.

For inland Fishery Development and Management, they empowered fisherfolks through organizational strengthening and organizing all tilapia growers.

Stocking of tilapia was made, while sustaining on the other hand the re-dispersal program.

The Mindanao North Coast Integrated Agricultural Development Project in Lisbong North Poblacion likewise supported the LGU’s Green and Healthy flagship program for this year.

Meanwhile, an ordinance requiring all household to adopt the Food Always in the Home (FAITH) Program was also enacted. (JCV/PIA 10)
