'GG' fishing ban proposed
MetadataShow full item record
Because of overfishing of mackerel scada, popularly known as galunggong, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources will impose a fishing ban off Northern Palawan within Sulu Sea from Nov.15 to January next year. BFAR director Asis Perez has recommended to Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala an administrative order to enforce a three-month closed season in the area of Northern Palawan to ban fishing galunggong, or "GG" in colloquial term, to preserve and protect its production. The supply of galunggong is expected to dwindle and that prices in the market will also go up, he said.
