spearheads the staging of “Oktubafest at the Leyte Park Convention Center A, on October 30, 2013. Representative Victoria “Binky” Noel said that Oktubafest which will start at 10:30 in the morning, is an annual festival which celebrates the native coconut wine and its cultural significance in the Region. Contests such as Best Bahal and Best Bahalina have been designed for this celebration of Oktubafest, Congresswoman Noel disclosed. The tuba industry is one of the many regional products that Eastern Visayans could claim as truly their own, Representative Noel said. It is also one of the most promising indigenous industries that with low equipment requirements and production cost would significantly

those living in the rural communities, the lady representative added. As the third largest coconut producing Region of the country, a revitalized and enriched Tuba Industry will help much towards harnessing this vital component of not only the Eastern Visayans’ culinary and cultural heritage but likewise economic wealth. Oktubafest is being conducted in collaboration with local business establishments especially those involved in the tuba and coconut industry. Congresswoman Noel expressed hope that the active participation of the business community, the government offices, and the local government units, would bring back the prestige and economic value of tuba which for many years have been a

Samar mayors commit to protect Samar Sea


amar mayors while on board MV/ DA-BFAR committed to support the projects given by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR). On October 26, six mayors of Samar signed a Memorandum of Agreement with BFAR National Director Asis Perez on their alliances on the protection and development of fisheries in their municipalities. Sto. Nino Mayor Lilia Conejos said that she is happy for the BFAR projects like the payao program and the P400 thousand support project BFAR will pour to her fishing municipality. These might be in the form of post-harvest facilities, as fish is highly perishable, and will require a good storage facility to command better price, said Perez. In the island town of Almagro, where Perez and other guests on board alighted the research vessel, the BFAR official sought the support of the fisherfolks gathered at the town square. “Hindi naman siguro kayo papayag na paputukan ng mga illegal fishers ang mga payao na para sa inyo?” (I am sure you won’t allow illegal fishers to blast your payaos), the fishery chief told the fishermen of Almagro. The other mayors also agreed that they will support the change of

fishing gears and implement a closedseason fishing. Closed-season fishing is the time when fishing is not allowed as the fish is in the spawning season or when the eggs lay their eggs. Sta. Margarita Mayor Gemma Zosa, Almagro Mayor Kathleen Prudenciado, Daram Mayor Lu Astorga, Sto Nino Mayor Lilia Conejos and Tagapul-an Mayor Vicente Limpiado and Calbayog Mayor Ronald Aquino had lively conversations with Perez, Director John Albaladejo and BFAR Samar Fishery Officer Rolado Ay-ay while cruising Samar Sea. The local chief executive also learned that Samar Sea hosts some premier fish species like alumahan, tanguigue, talakitok, bisugo among others. The vessel also deployed two payaos (fish aggregating device) in two areas near Sto. Nino island –town and Almagro island. The cruise also gave the Eastern Visayas media an appreciation of the different potentials in fisheries during the presscon inside the research vessel. A week before, some 75 fisherfolks from the six areas were treated to a training on how best to maximize the use of payaos. (PIA 8-Samar)

he Department of Health (DOH) Region 8 and the Samar Provincial Health Office (PHO) recently met with the Provincial Health Emergency Management Staff (PHEMS) composed of government agencies, non- government organizations and civic organizations in order to strengthen partnership and to fine tune plans in disaster preparedness in the province. Executive Order No. 102 mandates all levels of health facilities of the government to establish and institutionalize the Health Emergency Management Staff (HEMS) to prevent or minimize loss of lives and injuries during and after disasters or emergencies. Samar Provincial HEMS Coordinator Roque Limse said that in the event of disaster or emergency, the Rural Health Units (RHUs) City Health Office (CHOs) and Technical Divisions of the PHO are mandated to automatically converge HEMS and create a functional 24/7 Operation Center (OpCen). DOH Hospitals and other provincial hospitals are also mandated to establish and institutionalize the Hospital-HEMS and create a functional 24/7 OpCen. Limse stressed that in order to institutionalize the HEMS, the Local Government Unit of each health facility and the hospital concerned has to formulate the Local Policy, Protocol and Guidelines for HEMS and Health Emergency Preparedness Response and Rehabilitation Plan (HEPRRP). Limse also disclosed that in order to have comprehensive Disaster Preparedness Plan, there is a need to formulate a Hazard Analysis, Assessment and Vulnerability Assessment of the areas potential to hazards. He added that the role of continued on page 5

Samar Sea is home to valuable fish species


amar Sea is still the home of valuable fish species as compared to those found in the Visayan Sea. This is the news that welcomed the press in Eastern Visayas during a meeting with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources officials this weekend on board the MV/DA-BFAR research vessel. While cruising the Samar Sea, National Director Asis Perez shared some good news about the bounty of the premier fish species still found in Samar Sea. Raffy Ramiscal, Chief Scientist on board the BFAR research vessel said that if only Samar fisherfolks will avoid hunting juvenile fish, the volume of catch will be better for small fisherfolks. He then urged the mayors of coastal and island municipalities present to legislate measures and improve law enforcement so that supply of fish can be sustainable. “The more that we should push you to protect these fish,” said Perez.

Fish species like alumahan, hasa-hasa, talakitok and other fish that command better price still abound in the Samar Sea. The BFAR Director also urged the Samarnons to use sustainable fishing gears to protect the marine resources that gives the marginalized fishermen’s livelihood. Perez also assured the fisherfolks that the Aquino Administration is giving the fishery sector an unlimited support due to the ‘endless potentials in fisheries’ giving emphasis to the rise of small fisherfolks. Sta. Margarita Mayor Gemma Zosa, Almagro Mayor Kathleen Prudenciado, Daram Mayor Lu Astorga, Sto. Nino Mayor Lilia Conejos and Tagapul-an Mayor Vicente Limpiado and Calbayog Mayor Ronald Aquino went on board the vessel to assist Perez and Regional Director John Albaladejo in the ceremonial deployment of payaos in Samar Sea.
