Alcala to revitalize PH fisheries
MetadataShow full item record
Agriculture Secretary Proceso J. Alcala has vowed to revitalize the fishing industry and reverse the current condition of dwindling catch and vanishing fish population. Central to this task is the scientific research needed to determine exactly just how fish populations move within the 13 major fishing grounds in the country and how fisheries rules could be implemented to shore up the extant fish species that have moved further out at sea and down to the equator. Moreover, fisheries experts have also asked Alcala to reappoint Dr. Joebert Toldeo as head of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (Sefdec) in Tigbauan, Iloilo to prop up the science behind the policy of fish conservation.
