MetadataShow full item record
The amount of fish caught around the country is dwindling to dangerous levels which threatens the livelihood of 60 percent of the population dependent on fishing reports a research of Remelyn I. de Ramos of the Marine Sciences Institute of the University of the Philippines, at Diliman. The study said the most pronounced impact is being experienced in the two provinces of the Negros Island Region. The only food item that the region does not source from neighboring regions is fish, which can still be caught at the Tanon Strait and the waters of Negros Occidental.
