MetadataShow full item record
Illegal fishers are back in the bays of Tayabas and Lamon in Quezon province, this time with minors reportedly working on fishing boats, an official of an environmental group said. “The recruitment of minors as boat workers will give birth to the next generation of illegal fishers. It will be an endless cycle of environmental destruction,” Zeny Bernal, Tanggol Kalikasan (TK) Southern Luzon program director, said on Wednesday. She said TK, a public interest law office which advocates environmental protection, had been receiving reports of a resurgence of blast fishing and other illegal fishing activities in the province’s waters.
