MetadataShow full item record
Two lawmakers on Friday voiced their concern over what they call as “rampant illegal fishing in the country.” In House Resolution 1926, Reps. Rufus Rodriguez of Cagayan de Oro City and Maximo Rodriguez, Jr. of Abante Mindanao party-list asked the House committee on aquaculture and fisheries to conduct a probe into the matter to validate reports reaching them that “illegal fishing allegedly resulted from the failure of concerned government agencies to implement the laws.” “There is a need to look into the illegal fishing to determine why the law and regulations are not being implemented to the detriment of the Filipino fishermen,” Rodriguez, a former immigration commissioner, said.
