local.seafdecaqd.extractThe simplest ways of catching tuna are often the most sustainable. Environmental solutions provider World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) has renewed ties with Century Pacific Food, Inc. (CNPF), the Philippines’ largest canned food company, to promote artisanal tuna handline fishing in the Davao Gulf. Considered the country’s 10th most productive fishing site, the gulf buoys the economies of five coastal cities and 18 coastal municipalities. Though it employs 19,000 municipal plus 1,000 commercial fishers and annually contributes P1.18 billion to the country’s coffers, its fish are in dire straits. According to a study presented to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in 2008, the Davao Gulf is among the Philippines’ most overfished sites. It recently absorbed the bulk of displaced tuna fishers from General Santos.en
