Fisheries Code blamed for low fish production
MetadataShow full item record
A fisherfolk group on Sunday blamed the dwindling municipal fish production to the repressive provisions of the amended Fisheries Code under the Republic Act 10654, including its registration and licensing requirements. Citing a report of the Philippine Statistics Authority, the Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas said that total volume of production for fisheries was estimated at 971 thousand metric tons during the 3rd quarter of 2017, which is 3.89 percent less than the output for the same quarter in 2016. Pamalakaya said strict fishing restrictions such as the registration and licensing schemes that curtail the fishing activities of small fisherfolk affect fish production.
