MetadataShow full item record
Only a month after the promulgation of its newly signed implementing rules and regulation (IRR), Republic Act (RA) 10654, which amended the Philippine fisheries code 1998, is the highlight of this year's celebration of the fish conservation week. Led by the Department of Agriculture's Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, the 52nd FishCon week activities center on the theme, "Pinatatag na Batas ng Pangisdaan, Hakbang sa Pagkamit ng mas Masaganang karagatan." "Sinasalamin ng temang ito ang ating pagsulong ng isang mahalagang reporma tungo sa mas mahusay na pangangasiwa ng ating yamang-dagat," DA Undersecretary for Fisheries and BFAR national director Atty. Asis G. Perez said in his Fish Con message.
