Recutting seaweeds

Joy, a Caluya local recuts seaweed to be planted again. After loosing most of the crops during typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), the seaweed farmers have started to recut the seaweeds they still have into smaller bits and divvied them over more lines instead of selling them directly. In the long term this will compensate for the loss of seaweeds. Seaweed farming often involves the whole community and family.
