MetadataShow full item record
The successful management and protection of Tañon Strait, the Philippines’ largest marine protected area, should be replicated in other fishing grounds nationwide, marine conservation group Oceana Philippines said. Oceania Philippines lauded the government’s steadfast enforcement of environmental laws in protecting Tañon Strait against illegal, destructive and commercial fishing operations. Oceana Philippines VP Gloria Ramos said they are closely coordinating with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) and the local government units (LGUs) for the implementation of the Tañon Strait model in other seascapes, particularly in the Visayas. The Visayan Sea covers Masbate, Cebu, Negros Occidental and Iloilo.
