MetadataShow full item record
The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) and elements of the Philippine National Police confiscated on Saturday some 106 boxes of helmet shells at the Chinese pier in Jolo, Sulu. The BFAR reported that the helmet shells—a large endangered marine species of the Cassidae family—were owned by 60-year-old Peralta Pula and were bound for Cebu and Manila. Each box of the contraband contains about 15 to 23 pieces of helmet shells in varying sizes, the bureau said, adding that an inventory was being conducted to determine the total value of the intercepted cargo.
