MetadataShow full item record
Fishing within the Visayan Sea is prohibited for three months starting Nov. 15, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) here said. Fisheries Administrative Order (FAO) 167-3 series of 2013 established the closed season that specifically prohibits the catching, selling, and marketing of sardines, herring, and mackerel. BFAR regional director Remia Aparri said that the closed season allows herrings, sardines, and mackerels to spawn and to make fishing sustainable in the Visayan Sea.
