MetadataShow full item record
The government on Friday began its crackdown on unlicensed firearms allegedly used by guards manning fish pens in Laguna de Bay. Environment Undersecretary Arturo Valdez, who heads the National Anti-Environmental Crime Task Force, said the operation was launched after the agency received reports that armed men securing the fishery structures confronted and threatened fishermen in the lake. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA) on Friday inspected at least 15 fish pens that covered a total lake surface of 2,000 hectares.
