local.seafdecaqd.extractThe enforcement plan for the country’s largest marine protected area (MPA), Tañon Strait, underwent a fresh review, a move that will further protect the channel from commercial, illegal, and destructive fishing operations. A statement showed that concerned government agencies, local government units (LGUs), and fishing industry stakeholders, including civil society organizations (CSOs), recently gathered to review and strengthen an enforcement plan for Tañon Strait. Located between Cebu and Negros, Tañon Strait is one of the country’s major fishing grounds with an area of 5,182 square kilometers, which is more than three times the area of the Tubbataha National Park, in Palawan.en
