PH seeks 5-year extension of fishing access
The Philippines is looking to secure a five-year extension of its fishing access to the tuna-rich high seas pocket 1 (HSP1) of the Pacific Ocean that set to expire this year, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) said. “We want at least five years. We have to generate income, employment and economic activities. We would like to continue that situation and we will negotiate with the commission,” BFAR Director Eduardo Gongona said during the 14th Regular Session of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC) being held at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City this week.
