All of 22 net cages owned by the fish cultivators group, said one of its members, M Noor, were of the assistance of the HSS Fisheries Office.
“Pangasius seeds were raised for about five months until they can be harvested. Each net cage produces an average of 125 kilograms with the size of fish reaching 500 gram per fish," he said, Thursday (26/11).
By seeing the existing potential, with river water source almost neer dry out, he hopes in the future there will be additional capital assistance from the government to the pokdakan.
Regent H. Achmad Fikry said the government will continue to encourage people to have food security in the form of rice, vegetable, and fish.
According to him, the potential in Tanah Bangkang is very possible to realize food security in the community. People here can farm, make plantation, or cultiating fish, because they almost never dry. Be grateful for what Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has given in the form of natural wealth.
He suggested the pokdakan to think about marketing. With a clear market, every time of harvest it will be easy to sell, just contact the buyers.
