Fisherfolk now earn little from less catch-Oceana
MetadataShow full item record
Filipino fishermen are catching less and less from depleted oceans compared with previous decades as a result of overfishing, illegal activities, and going for juvenile catch. In the process, the fisherfolk are earning less for their livelihood, the international non-profit group Oceana Philippines said. "It is unfortunate that the country's small and commercial fishermen are fishing themselves out of business, but this trend can be reversed," said lawyer Gloria Estenzo Ramos, vice president of Oceana Philippines.
