Uncertain future for 3 reef-fish species
MetadataShow full item record
The future of the shrinking population of three reef-fish-for-food species in Palawan seas are now uncertain after the Sangguniang Panlalawigan approved Tuesday a measure to suspend the imposition of the 'seasonal control" on the live fish trading industry. During its regular session, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan passed a measure authored by Board Member Winston Arzaga, and co-authored by all members, to stop the multi-sectoral and inter-disciplinary body Palawan Council for Sustainable Development (PCSD) from imposing the "seasonal control" (open-close season) on the catching and trading of the leopard coral trot (Plectropumus leopardus), or red grouper and suno; estuary or green grouper (Epinephelus coioides), or loba; and tiger brown-marbled grouper (Epinephelus fuscoguttatus), or lapung baboy.
