Bicol waging war vs illegal fishers
MetadataShow full item record
The operations of bigtime illegal fishers poaching the waters of the Bicol region are numbered, Chief Supt. Victor Deona of the region’s police force said over the weekend. Deona’s declaration was lauded by church and government officials in the Bicol region, as well as environmentalists and marginalized fishermen. Recently, two large fishing vessels equipped with superlights and sophisticated fish-finder gadgets that were reportedly owned by a local official in Quezon province were apprehended by police operatives in the provinces of Masbate and Sorsogon.
