Starting next week, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources in Central Visayas (BFAR-7) will be headed by a Boholano.
Andres Bojos who will be stepping down as regional director will be replaced by Clarin native Dr. Allan Poquita, the current assistant director of BFAR 7.
The announcement of his replacement was made by Bojos himself during the turnover of a P3-million community fish landing center in Inabanga.
Following the event, the BFAR also turned over the Multi-Species Hatchery and Training Center in Barangay Bentig, Calape.
According to Bojos, before he steps down as agency regional director, the BFAR will be allocating P300,000 to fishermen in Inabanga for their livelihood.
Poquita, for his part, said that it is possible that the BFAR would extend more financial aid to said fishermen.
The BFAR officials also vowed to provide a chest freezer and icemaker to the community fish landing center in Inabanga. (Rey Tutas)
