The Davao Region’s Governor Corazon Malanyaon recently spearheaded the opening of the first-ever public-private tilapia hatchery project in a poor local coastal village to help its struggling small-scale farmers.

Malanyaon believes this is the best strategy to fight the famine rampant especially in remote provincial villages. 

The PHP 575,000 (USD 13,329) tilapia hatchery and nursery centre is unprecedented in the village of Tibanban in the municipality of Governor Generoso.

As Malanyaon’s initiative, the tilapia hatchery project is receiving the full backing of the provincial and municipal governments plus the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR). The provincial government funded 40 per cent of the project at PHP 225,000 (USD 5,216), while BFAR and the municipal government of Governor Generoso gave PHP 175,000 (USD 4,057) and PHP 50,000 (USD 1,159), respectively, PNA reports.

Rudy Rubio, small-scale farmer and owner of the 2 ha property where the tilapia hatchery and nursery centre was built, gave PHP 125,000 (USD 2,898).

President Benigno Aquino III has issued Executive Order No 8, which created the Public-Private Partnership Centre of the Philippines, seeking to boost the financing, construction and operations of important government infrastructure schemes.


The centre is meant to assist local government units in the execution of projects, provide advisory services for preparation and development, recommend policies, monitor all projects and manage and administer the revolving fund, or Project Development and Monitoring Facility.

"I am so happy for this project. This is the best way to combat hunger. And we have to be strongly united against hunger. We hope to replicate this in other municipalities of the province," said Malanyaon.

She is additionally working toward wholesale changes in aquaculture techniques to protect the environment and guarantee that everyone gets enough to eat.

Malanyaon’s programme will concentrate on enhancing the participation of the private sector in the provision of public services and infrastructure, as the government cannot afford to pay for the construction of new facilities.

George Campeon, BFAR regional executive director in Southern Mindanao, said the government is moving to set up more mariculture parks and freshwater aquaculture.

Furthermore, the provincial government has already built the 500-ha Pujada Bay Mariculture Park in the capital town of Mati.

Rotchie Ravelo, technical assistant of the provincial government's Pagkain at Kita Programme, said four more tilapia hatchery and nursery centres will be established in the municipalities of Lupon, Manay, Caraga and Cateel.

The provincial government intends to grow tilapia production from 70 to 120 ha and increase production from 176 to 456 tonnes.

For milkfish, the plan is to expand production areas from 700 to 1,201 ha and increase production from 3,100 to 9,600 tonnes. For marine fish, production will go from 9,000 to 20,000 tonnes.
