Brief description of the livelihood:

Members-fishers of BBFA are familiar with existing coastal and marine resources, local culture and heritage which will be the highlights of eco-tour experience that the association will offer to tourists. BBFA members underwent training on food preparation and good manufacturing practices to supply food to tourists. The initial catering activities of BBFA prompted BFAR to grant kitchen tools and equipment to the association. Its members plan to continuously participate in relevant trainings that include basic eco-tour guiding, basic life support, water search and rescue and effective customer relations that will be provided by DENR SMARTSeas in partnership with Provincial Tourism Ofice and Manjuyod LGU.
