Solar-Powered LED Lighting for Tuna Landing Site in San Jose, Philippines

The inauguration of one of our recently selected SEPS projects, which aims to improve the value chain of tuna handline fisheries by establishing a solar-powered central landing site for night fishing activities in the Philippines, was featured in the Manila Times.

Together with WWF Philippines, the Municipality of San Jose and the company Philips, the WISIONS initiative will support the nocturnal illumination of San Jose Port, a tuna landing site, using solar-powered LED lighting.

Presently, small-scale fisherfolk land their catch indiscriminately in varying locations, sometimes on unsanitary beaching areas. By addressing this issue, WWF will not only encourage more sustainable fishing activities, but also foster hygienic practices and improve the monitoring of the catch.

The full article on the initiation of the project is available online at The Manila Times.
