Amended Fisheries Code ready for implementation
MetadataShow full item record
The country’s amended Fisheries Code will be ready for implementation soon since the Department of Agriculture (DA) is scheduled to sign the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) for this legislation this week. The DA said the implementing rules and regulations for the Philippine Fisheries Code of 1998 as amended by Republic Act (RA) 10654 will be ready for signing any time before September 24 almost half a year since the drafting of the IRR. To fully implement the Amended Fisheries Code, the IRR lays down the guidelines on the enforcement of various fisheries conservation measures. It covers the specific procedures on how to impose the penalties to fishers who committed illegal, unreported and, unregulated (IUU) fishing activities.
