Seaweed farmer

Romeo Diaz from Sibolo Island, Caluya, tends to his seaweeds. Seaweed farming is the main livelihood here and when done correctly is far more sustainable then fishing and can provide a much better income. Unfortunatly, Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) washed away most of the crops but the locals are determined to recover and regrow their seaweeds.
