CA reverses ruling on fishing ordinance
MetadataShow full item record
The Court of Appeals (CA) has reversed the ruling of a local trial court that junked a Camarines Norte town’s ordinance allowing the confiscation of fishing vessels that use illegal paraphernalia. A 16-page decision dated March 25 gave weight to the appeal of Mercedes municipality, saying it could exercise its prerogative in protecting its coastal and marine resources under the Local Government Code. It also found the Municipality Ordinance (MO) No. 159-2007 consistent with the provisions of the Philippine Fisheries Code of 1998.
