‘Stop destructive fishing’
MetadataShow full item record
The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) called for the “proper” enforcement of fisheries law in the country. Destructive fishing methods that contribute to the decline of fish supply include blast fishing, bottom trawl, and modified Danish seine, and the illegal exploitation of commercial fishers in municipal waters, the bureau chief said.“For a country that is dependent on the seas for sustenance and livelihood, we certainly need to be more vigilant in protecting our marine resources,” said Ramos. Apart from strengthening fishing rules, Oceana Philippines also pushed for sustainable management of marine resources to protect the spawning ground of fish.
