Fishers’ group hits ‘blanket order’ to demolish Laguna de Bay structures
MetadataShow full item record
The Alyansa ng mga Pederasyong Kumikilos sa Lawa ng Laguna posed the question as it called for the suspension of the moratorium on aquaculture being imposed by the Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA). The group questioned LLDA Board Resolution No. 518, which set off the dismantling of fish pens based on a directive the President made as early as July last year, in his first State of the Nation Address. For the alliance, it was “a blanket order” that covered even small fish cages as well as structures for kangkong (water spinach) farms.
