II. PROJECT DESCRIPTION
1. Rationale
Deep sea fishing requires a lot of capital investment on the part of the fishermen. In
order to have an assured fish catch, there is a need to invest in putting up fish aggregating
device or payao.
1|P ro j ec t P r op o sa l : E sta b l ish men t o f FAD

With the present situation of our fishermen, there is need for the local government to
assist and help them through sourcing out funds from appropriate funding agencies more
particularly the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources of the Department of Agriculture.
With the implementation of the innovative and grassroots-based approach in project
identification the Bottom-Up Budgeting and Planning, the LGU deemed it appropriate to
request the Department of Agriculture funds for the project: Establishment of Fish Aggregating
Device for deep sea fishing.
As per September 2014 CBMS Survey of the Municipal Government of Bato through its
Municipal Planning and Development Office, 84.68% of households in the identified barangays
are living below the poverty threshold set by the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB)
(Table 1). The identified barangays has the combined total population of 4,194 individuals and
an average household size of 4.93 or 5 persons per household (Table 2). 38.5% of the working
population is majorly composed of fisherfolks, farmers and forestry workers (Table 3) and since
the identified areas are within coastal zone of the municipality, 80-90% of the working
populations are fishermen. Barangay Pananaogan has the largest number of fishermen which
constitutes almost 95% of its working population.

2. Objectives
With the foregoing economic situation, this project has the general objective of reducing
households living below the poverty threshold in the identified barangays from 84.68% to at
least 65%.
Specifically, this project is aimed at providing specific area for fishing activities that
would ensure fish catch, increase the volume of fishes captured, provide sufficient supply of fish
in the locality, and finally increase the income of the fisherfolks.
3. Expected Outputs
It is expected that this project would ensure increase in fish catch with less fuel
consumption, thus will increase income of fishing households. In the long term, the project
would ensure the availability of sufficient and steady supply of fish in the locality and, therefore,
improved the living condition of the fisherfolks.
4. Component Activities
The beneficiaries will be responsible for the construction and installation of the device
under the direct supervision of the Office of the Municipal Agriculturist. Safeguarding of the unit
once installed shall also be the responsibility of the beneficiaries.
A Memorandum of Agreement will be executed between the local government unit of
Bato and beneficiary to include among others the responsibility of the latter to provide
counterpart for the construction, operation and maintenance of the project. This counterpart
will include but not limited to: Labor and fuel for maintenance of the project, security,
harvesting and marketing cost, and submission of reports. The beneficiaries shall ensure that
3|Project Proposal: Establishment of FAD

adequate savings from the proceeds of sales will be allocated to finance succeeding operations
of the project, thus attain sustainability.
The local government unit, on behalf of beneficiaries, shall request technical assistance
from DA-BFAR to ensure proper supervision and management of the project. The LGU shall also
conduct regular monitoring to ensure the proper implementation of the project.
The following are the project components:
(Pre-operating activities)
a. Identification of beneficiary fisherfolks association;
b. Organization of Project Management Committee (PMC) composed of LGU organic
personnel and representative from the identified beneficiaries;
c. Conduct of quarterly meeting; and
d. Orientation on project implementation and capacity building for beneficiaries on
technical and financial management; and
e. MOA Signing;
(Project Implementation)
a. Procurement of Materials;
b. Preparation of Materials and Installation;
c. Operation and Maintenance (include security, harvesting, marketing and submission of
reports); and
d. Project Monitoring
Table 4 below shows the materials and installation fund requirement of the project.
However, a more detailed distribution of budgetary requirements is presented in Work and
Financial Plan in Table 7.

7. Economic Benefits / Impacts


With the introduction of Fish Aggregating Device, there is an expected increase in fish
catch from the average of 5 kg per day per individual beneficiary to 10 kg per day per individual
beneficiary. With fish sold at 75 per kg, gross income of each fisherman will increase from P
375.00 to P 750.00 per day. Subtracting 35% of gross income as expenses, average daily income
of each fisherman will increase from P 243.75 to P 487.50 per day. As such, poverty threshold in
the identified areas is expected to reduce from 84.68% to 65% in just a year or two.

8. Sustainability Plan
It is an important component of every livelihood project funded by the National
Government to ensure its sustainability, thus, Table 7 below shows the programs and activities
