San Pedro City—Government agencies have stepped up efforts to clear the 90,000-hectare Laguna de Bay of aquaculture structures after the government-imposed deadline for fish pen operators to harvest their stocks lapsed last week. It was in Mr. Duterte’s first Sona in July last year when he ordered the rehabilitation of Laguna de Bay by reducing fish pens and turning the lake into an ecotourism zone to benefit small fishermen and lakeside communities. The LLDA, in February, issued a one-year fishing moratorium as experts reviewed the lake’s natural carrying capacity for aquaculture.
