Balingasag is home of a 195.07- hectare of mariculture park which covered 5 coastal barangays. Launched in 2007, the park serves as the center of fishery-related activities such as aquaculturing, mangroves growing, sea ranching, and sea sanctuary. It now has 243 cages in which majority is occupied for bangus cultivation. In 2010, the volume of milkfish production reached more than 900 metric tons.
Since the operation of the mariculture park, a significant increase in bangus productivity is observed. It is declared as One Town, One Product (OTOP) of the municipality and through the collaborations of BFAR 10 and LGU-Balingasag, the Balingasag bangus is now exported in the United States. (Source)
