Fisheries reform law needed—Pamalakaya
MetadataShow full item record
The fisherfolk group Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (Pamalakaya) on Friday said that Senator Francis Pangilinan was out of touch with reality for stating that the fisheries sector could be an “aquaculture superpower.” Pangilinan, who chairs the Senate committee on agriculture and food, said our country is capable of being an “aquaculture superpower” due to “our diverse fishing waters.” Pamalakaya opposed the conversion of Philippine communal fishing waters into enclosed, private aquaculture oriented to export instead of promoting open-fishing grounds based on domestic consumption.
