The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and the Local Government Unit of San Agustin jointly led the groundbreaking ceremony for a proposed 1-ton capacity Ice Plant at the Marine Fish Landing Center along Carmen Bay in San Agustin.

This facility is expected to be a game-changer for the local fishermen as this will serve as a reliable source of ice, enabling fishermen to preserve their catch effectively and ensure its quality.

This will also be the second government-funded ice plant project in Romblon, where fishing is one of the residents’ major occupation and source of income.
