Gov't cracks down on illegal fishing in Tañon Strait
MetadataShow full item record
The government is taking a tougher stance against illegal fishing with the implementation of an improved enforcement plan in Tañon Strait, the country’s biggest marine protected area. The enforcement plan is one of the components of Tañon Strait’s General Management Plan which provides mechanisms for protecting marine habitats, ensuring sustainable fisheries, and reducing illegal fishing through increased patrolling and apprehension, prosecution of violators, and training of law enforcers. Local government units (LGUs) and other agencies aim to conduct more sea patrols and file cases against illegal and commercial fishers in Tañon Strait, a protected area between Cebu and Negros.
