MetadataShow full item record
The new fisheries code remains the basis for the administration of the fishery in disputed waters, the Department of Agriculture (DA) said, even if Chinese incursions have reduced the exclusive economic zone in the South China Sea by about 80%.

" We do not want war but there are lots of ways to push for the rights of the fisherfolk in the disputed area, " he added.
