Fishermen group cry foul over Laguna de Bay moratorium
MetadataShow full item record
Amidst ongoing plans to revitalize the ecosystem of Laguna de Bay, the Association of Laguna Lake Fisher Producers and Fisher Folks Inc. (ALLFPFF) continues to seek reconsideration on Laguna Lake Development Authority’s (LLDA) one-year moratium on all fishpens, fishcages, and other aquaculture structure in the country’s largest lake. The group of fishermen said recklessly disturbing the lake’s fragile ecosystem will destroy its aquaculture industry and will completely go against the government’s own efforts to promote balanced and healthful ecology. Fish pen operators are given only until March 31 to harvest their stocks and volunteer to demolish their aquaculture structures.
