Fish aggregating device‘efficient, sustainable’
MetadataShow full item record
A city councilor is pushing for the use of fish aggregating devices locally known as payao. Payao is a floating raft anchored by a weighted line with suspended materials such as palm fronds to attract pelagic and schooling fish species common in deep waters. Such devices are an "efficient, legal and sustainable" fishing method, according to Councilor Bartolome Orola. Using fish aggregating devices discourages the use of illegal fishing methods, said the chairman of the committee on fisheries and aquatic resources.
