Abalone as a Sustainable Seafood Product

Abalone as a Sustainable Seafood Product

The abalone (Haliotis Asinina) production being studied in Sagay Marine Reserve by the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) Aquaculture Department, caught the attention of Greenpeace International as one of the Sustainable Seafood products that can be promoted.

Negros Occidental with its potential for Seafood products has been invited in the Philippine Seafood Week, February 20-26, 2017. Chefs of international and local hotel and restaurant chains signed the commitment to protect the ocean and livelihoods of marginal fisher folks by buying only seafood products that are certified and catches from environment friendly aquaculture/marine practices.

As emphasized by the head of the Greenpeace, Nadereve Sano, “the state of the ocean affects the food we eat, let us protect the future, bring back the oceans to life”.

Gov. Maranon believes that priority focus on our fishery resources has to be aggressive and sustainable. “As we promote the province’s potential in organic agriculture and culinary destination, we need to serve food that are safe, healthy and are produced from good practices, we also need to tap the right market for our products.*
