Abstract

Managerial skills and volume of seafood catch of local bukatot fisherfolks as bases in crafting Human resource development model

Author: Carcido, Mae B.

This research determined the level of managerial skills and volume of seafood catch bukatot fisherfolks in order to propose a human resource development model. This study determined the following: (1) the level of managerial skills of local “bukatot” fisherfolks along: (a) Planning, (b) Organizing, (c) Leading, and (d) controlling; (2) The average volume of seafood catch of local “bukatot” fisherfolks for the second quarter of the year 2019: (a) Fish, (b) Mollusk, and (c) Crustacean; (3) the significant differences in the level of managerial skills between respondents; (4) the significant relationship between managerial skills and seafood catch; and (5) the human resource development model that could be proposed for the local bukatot fisherfolks. Using the descriptive-correlational method, the study gathered data through interviews and questionnaires. The statistical tools used in the study were frequency count and percentage, weighted mean, ranking, t-test, and the Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation. Major finding were: 1) The bukatot fisherfolks obtained average weighted mean of 3.17 for planning, 3.33 for organizing, 3.30 for leading, and 3.16 for controlling. These managerial skills obtained a general average weighted mean of 3.24; (2) The average volume of seafood catch were 1187.35 kilos for fish, 98.56 for mollusk, and 63.41 for crustaceans; 3) The significant differences in the level of managerial skills between respondents were indicated by the following t and p values; t=1.743 and p=0.085 (planning), 2.679 and 0.009 (organizing), 1.363 and 0.179 (leading) and 2.702 and 0.008 (controlling); 4) The relationship between the overall management skills and seafood catch showed r and p values for fish (r=-0.222 and p=0.121), mollusks (-0.107 and 0.468), and crustaceans (-0.149 and 0.301), respectively: and 5) A Human Resource Development Model Proposed to the buktot fisherfolks, simple but essential in meeting the aims laid down by the bukatot fisherfolks. The following conclusions were arrived at in the study: 1) The bukatot manager’s level of managerial skills were very good along organizing and leading while good terms of planning and controlling; 2) A low-level of seafood catch along fish, mollusk, and crustacean was observed; 3) The differences in the level of managerial skills along organizing and controlling were significant , whereas along planning and leading were not significant; 4) Managerial skills along planning, organizing, leading, and controlling and seafood catch along fish, mollusk, and crustacean had no significant relationship and lastly; 5) From the findings of the study, a human resource development model proposed was highlighting the need to improve more the bukatot fisherfolks’ level of managerial skills along controlling and planning.
