Hi, Dong, Eufemio Rasco 
Thanks for surfacing ideas in these two areas: fisheries and food packaging. I'd raise these with people in FLHAI about how mariculture parks can deeply play into their food vision.
They had been floating other kinds of ideas around fisheries. One of these is the use of organic wastes from fish processing as a base material and an alternative to plastic-based food packaging. This is an area where FLHAI probably can, in the future, seek guidance or assistance from DOST.
The craftsmanship of basket-making using bamboo and other plants, like nipa, is now only practiced by an older generation, much like rural farming, and is vanishing. Allied skills and industries around food, re-discovering bag- or basket-weaving, would be necessary to revive, and coupled with deliberate regrowing of plants (such as bamboo, nipa, and coconut). Finding efficiencies in their use as a source for food and as natural food packaging or containers is a way to go.
Again, thank you, all ideas worth considering! ---- Albert
