MetadataShow full item record
A total of 62 trainees has recently completed a three-month fishery enforcement training organized by the Department of Agriculture's Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (DA-BFAR) at the National Brackishwater Fisheries Technology Center in Pagbilao, Quezon. The training, which initially had 76 participants, aimed to bolster the fight against illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing. Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala, in a statement, said that the training was meant to capacitate BFAR's personnel with enough knowledge and skills. BFAR National Director Asis Perez explained that the first part was a one-month transition period, while the second was a 60-day training on the operations and protocols of BFAR, shipboard operations, and water search and rescue, among others. The graduates will be deployed in the country's fishing grounds.
