5-year ludong fish ban pushed
MetadataShow full item record
The imminent extinction of the rare “ludong” fish species, also known as the lobed river mullet, depends on the proactive moves of local government units hosting the fish’s habitats and their support of the fishery sector in Cagayan Valley. Dr. Evelyn Ame, Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources research division chief and project leader of the Ludong Preservation Project, said a five-year ban on catching the fish is being pushed, while the bureau is rallying support from the LGUs through the enactment of ordinances and resolutions. The closed season for “ludong” fishing would be enforced during its migration run from October to December every year, to enable the endangered species to reproduce, Ame said.
