Brief description of the livelihood:

NAMATI’s fish processing business will source bangus from neighboring barangays operating fish ponds or from the organization’s pond itself. In Surigao del Sur province and Tandag City, there is limited availability of locally deboned fish and absence of flavored deboned fish supply could bring opportunity for NAMATI to influence the market. The products will be presented using eco-friendly packaging materials such as banana leaves, bayong, paper, and bamboo cases. NAMATI’s deboning fish business is seen as a start-up initiative towards a sustainable BDFE. As a long term plan, the association is aiming to venture into eco-farming and tour operation where complementary BDFEs will evolve such as floating restaurant, organic vegetable gardening or organic feed production.
