This after Oceana, the world’s biggest international NGO focused on marine conservation, completed a seven-day expedition which showed that illegal fishing activities, particularly dynamite and cyanide fishing, continued to operate in Tañon Strait, the country’s largest marine protected area between Cebu and Negros islands. Oceana, the world’s biggest international NGO focused on marine conservation, gathered valuable information and testimonies of small fisherfolk and local barangay and municipal officials, and monitored the impacts of destructive fishing and the presence of commercial fishing vehicles.
