Fisherfolk: Demolish fish pens
MetadataShow full item record
On the deadline of the fish pen demolition, the fisherfolk group Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (Pamalakaya) and the environmental alliance Save Laguna Lake Movement urged authorities to hasten the demolition of corporate-owned fish ponds. They addressed their demands with the Laguna Lake Development Authority and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Friday to hasten the demolition of wide, corporate-owned fish pens in Laguna de Bay to bring back the common fishing ground of small and municipal fisherfolk in Laguna lake. The government has been dismantling wide fish pens in Laguna de Bay since January this year in line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s order to clear fish pen structures for the utilization of small fisherfolk.
