MetadataShow full item record
Senators slammed the apparent late action taken by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) against the illegal diversion of pink salmon and pampano to wet markets. Senators Raffy Tulfo and Cynthia Villar, at a Senate hearing, grilled the BFAR over the issue. BFAR officer-in-charge Demosthenes Escoto explained that the bureau had been implementing the Fisheries Administrative Order (FAO) No. 195 since 1999. But they were prompted to reinforce this due to the prevalence of illegally diverted pampano and pink salmon to markets, GMA News reported.
