Palawan to effect fishing season ban
MetadataShow full item record
The multi-sectoral and inter-disciplinary body Palawan Council for Sustainable Development(PCSD) will push for the implementation of the seasonal fishing ban on the reef-fish-for food(RFF) after May next year to save fish production from dwindling. PCSD executive director Nelson Devanadera said that although the implementation was stalled this year, the policy has been approved and has to be implemented on species of grouper, whose populations have greatly declined due to over-extraction and coral habitat destruction. He said they will put the police in place by June 30, 2016 to give way to a transition period after the national elections.
