Visayan Sea exclusive for small fishers - governors
MetadataShow full item record
Three Visayas provinces have signed a resolution requesting Congress and President Benigno Aquino III to declare the one million- hectare Visayan Sea a marine reserve exclusive only for small fishers. Iloilo, Negros Occidental, Cebu, and Masbate share jurisdiction of the Visayan Sea, which is known for being the richest and the biggest in marine resources in the whole country. If the whole Visayan Sea will be declared a marine reserve, Oposa said, it would only be the small fishers who can enjoy its bounty, thereby ensuring a non-stop stock fishes for the whole country.
