It also aims to promote aqua-business and open the village to livelihood and tourism opportunities amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Participants received training in food preservation methods, practical food preparation and the basics of fish processing.

Mayor Rex Gatchalian said village livelihood training is the key to manifesting a great impact among residents towards an effective and sustainable community program that will continue in the city in terms of portability and replication.

Besides the training, active consultations also took place with the barangay and stakeholders to keep the community involved in planning and development.

The fishing village of Tagalag was opened in February 2020, to provide livelihoods, recreational activity spaces for residents, promote fishery products and boost tourism in the region.

The program was recognized as one of the “Ten Outstanding Local Governance Programs” at the 2021 Galing Pook Awards in October.
