Small fisherfolk to get Laguna Lake fisheries priority
MetadataShow full item record
The Laguna Lake Development Authority(LLDA) will prioritize small fisherfolk for fisheries in Laguna de Bay, the Philippines’ biggest lake. Allocation of the lake’s fishing areas will prioritize such fisherfolk there, noted LLDA general manager Jaime Medina. Both measures aim at helping improve small fisherfolk’s competitiveness and socio economic condition, he noted. Medina said LLDA already commenced validating its list of about 22,000 people fishing in Laguna de Bay to identify legitimate small fisherfolk there.
