Commercial fish operators protest revised law
MetadataShow full item record
Commercial fishing operators and fish traders warned of a nationwide protest against the implementation of the amended Philippine Fisheries Code, the controversial Republic Act No. 10654. which prevents, deters and eliminates illegal, unreported and and unregulated (IUU) fishing. Dr. Mario Pascual, a fish trader based in Navotas City, said his group and other medium scale commercial fishing operators had been campaigning across the country against the punitive provisions of the law. The amended Fisheries Code sets penalties from P1 million to as high as P45 million for commercial fishing violators.
