Climate change worries fishers
MetadataShow full item record
Small fishers in Negros Occidental have expressed concern over climate change. It forces fishes to migrate, thereby affecting their catch, said Abcede Jardinico, chairman of the Negros Occidental Small Fishers Alliance (not Negros Occidental Small Farmers Association as earlier reported), or Nosfa. Sen. Risa Hontiveros, the event’s keynote speaker, claimed that climate change lead to poor fish catch. According to the senator, 39.2 percent — or 1.6 million — of Filipino fishers are vulnerable to declining fish catch due to climate change.
