can anyone tell me about Alicia, isabela, Philippines. I am looking for information about Alicia? thanks?

Both are ethnically and linguistically diverse, with a substrate of Agtas, Negritos who are food-gatherers with no fixed abode, overlaid by Ilonggos and others in a number of tribes, some of whom were fierce head-hunters (we are firmly assured that they have given up the practice), with the latest but largest element of the population being Ilocanos. The Babuyan and Batanes island groups that lie in the Luzon Strait also belong to the region. The recent aquaculture congress found that the growth of tilapia production was due to government interventions: provision of fast-growing species, accreditation of private hatcheries to ensure supply of quality fingerlings, establishment of demonstration farms, providing free fingerlings to newly constructed fishponds, and the dissemination of tilapia to Nueva Vizcaya (in Diadi town). Production supply grew 37.25% since 2003, with 14,000 metric tons (MT) in 2007. Cagayan River, the country’s longest river runs through its center and flows out to Luzon Strait in the north, in the town of Aparri, Cagayan. They have deposits of gold, silver, copper, iron. Both are relatively small in size (3057 km² for Quirino, 4081 km² for Nueva Vizcaya) and population (147,000 and 365,000, respectively, by the 2000 census). Nueva Vizcaya is the remnant of the southern province created when Cagayan Province was divided in two in 1839.

The Philippine Republic’s Region II, Cagayan Valley, contains two landlocked provinces, Quirino and Nueva Vizcaya. Nueva Vizcaya comprises fifteen towns; Bayombong is the capital. Agriculture in both has until recently consisted of slash-and-burn cultivation of corn and maize, though more stable cultivation of vegetables and fruits is becoming established.

Archaeology indicates that the Cagayan Valley has been inhabited for half a million years, though no human remains of any such antiquity have yet appeared. It is composed of five provinces, namely: Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, and Quirino.

Economy

The Cagayan Valley Region is defined by the Cagayan River, the largest in the Philippines. Cagayan’s area is 9,003 km²., its population 952,000 (by the 2000 census) in twenty-nine towns, of which Tuguegarao is the capital. The earliest inhabitants are the Agta, or Atta, food-gatherers who roam the forests without fixed abode. A large tract of land has lately been returned to them.

At Balete Pass in Nueva Vizcaya the retreating Japanese under General Tomoyuki Yamashita dug in and held on for three months against the American and Filipino forces who eventually drove them out; the pass is now called Dalton Pass in honor of General Dalton, USA, who was killed in the fighting. In this case there is some vexillological relationship between them, as the flag of New Biscay bears the arms of Biscay impaled on its seal. Tobacco is still a major factor in the economy of Cagayan, though a special economic zone and free port has been created to strengthen and diversify the provincial economy. Former cycling champion Lupo Alava is a multi-awarded tilapia raiser in Bagabag, Nueva Vizcaya. Both are ruggedly mountainous and heavily forested.

Most of the region lies in a large valley in northeastern Luzon, between the Cordilleras and the Sierra Madre mountain ranges. The Province of Cagayan occupies the lower course of the river, and the northeast corner of the island of Luzon (with a few offshore islets). Chairman Thompson Lantion of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, a retired two-star police general, has fishponds in La Torre

Nueva Vizcaya was probably named after Vizcaya (English ‘Biscay’, Basque ‘Bizkaia’) province in northern Spain. On January 11, 2008, the Cagayan Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) stated that tilapia (species of cichlid fishes from the tilapiine cichlid tribe) production grew and Cagayan Valley is now the Philippines’ tilapia capital (Saint Peter’s fish). Cagayan has much to offer visitors: beaches, swimming, snorkeling, skin-diving, fishing in the river and the sea, hiking in primeval forest, mountain-climbing, archaeological sites, the remarkable collection of the provincial museum, the Callao Caves, and many fine churches. Both also produce logs, and are trying to manage their forest resources so that production can be sustained indefinitely. In the nineteenth century the prosperity found in tobacco cultivation caused many Ilocanos to settle here. Nueva Vizcaya has sand and clay. Even here there are fortifications built to protect the inhabitants from raids by the Moros
