MetadataShow full item record
The municipal chapter of the group Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas in Lemery, Batangas on Sunday lamented a two-month fishing ban in Balayan Bay, saying it would affect thousands of fisherfolk from seven municipalities situated along the bay. The ban will take effect on November 19. The two-month closed season in Balayan Bay is imposed every year since 2014 to rehabilitate depleting marine resources due to overfishing.
