Feom Nov. 15, 2016 to Feb. 15, 2017 it is prohibited to catch sardines, herrings and mackerels in the Visayan Sea – a rich fishing ground bordered by the islands of Panay, Negros, Cebu, and Masbate. The annual closed season for these fish groups gives them a chance to replenish their population. Overfishing and illegal fishing endanger the population of fishes. These have adverse economic impacts. Sardines, herrings and mackerels in the Visayan Sea must be protected and conserved so that future generations will continue to benefit from these rich fishery resources.
