Brief description of the livelihood:

Agis-agis Seaweeds Grower Association [ASGA] will demonstrate that when fisherfolk work together, they will get a better farm gate price as the cut/commission that normally goes to the buyer will be earned by the association of which they are members. Profit sharing opportunity will also be offered to RDS suppliers at the end of the year. Since the BDFE is collectively owned and managed by the Agis-agis Seaweed Growers Association [ASGA], the members can look forward to reap the fruits of their labor.
