The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) together with the Sibuco municipal government will formally inaugurate a newly completed P4.8-million Fish Landing in Sibuco, Zamboanga del Norte this Tuesday.

Sibuco Mayor Norbideiri B. Edding said that the newly completed fish landing with flea market will benefit farmers and fishermen who can use the project to sell both their catch and farm produce.

“The place can serve as a fish landing site at the same time, the flea market will serve as a convergence area where farmers can sell their farm products,” said Edding.

Sibuco town is supplying farm products such as bananas, sweet potatoes and others to Zamboanga city.

Sibuco fishermen also supply high value fish varieties to Zamboanga and other areas such as Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Cebu and Manila.

Sibuco consists of 28 barangays and is located adjacent to Zamboanga city’s west coast.  (Ely Dumaboc)
