local.seafdecaqd.extractAlarmed by reports of the real threat of destruction to coral reefs, authorities in Davao region are now working closely to implement efforts to clear its coastal waters of the sea star (starfish) called crown-of-thorns. “This kind of sea star is a pest,” said Fatma Idris, director of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources in Davao region (BFAR-11) during the regular Kapehan sa Dabaw on Monday, September 14 at the SM City here. Scientifically called Acanthaster planci, the crown-of-thorns are known for preying on corals and are considered as one of the largest starfish in the world.en
