MetadataShow full item record
The number of unregulated and illegal fishing in the Philippines have resulted into the decline of sustainable with fisheries with 75 percent overfished fishing grounds in the country, Philippine fisheries advocates revealed Friday. "In 2012, we released a statement saying that the Philippine seas are already in crisis," Vince Cinches, ocean campaigner for Greenpeace Philippines said during a forum, organized by Oceana Philippines, held in Quezon City. Illegal fishing in the Philippines remains a problem despite the advancements in fisheries enforcement. The total catch at the national level remains stable but it is being maintained temporarily because fishers continue to move from one resource to new areas.
