local.seafdecaqd.extractBayombong, Nueva Vizcaya Cagayan Valley, one of the country's major sources of saltwater fish, is losing about ₱150 million worth of fish annually due to poaching, according to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR). These losses, BFAR said, are based on the estimated volume of fish caught by both local and foreign poachers in the country's northern waters, especially in the fishing grounds of Batanes and Calayan in Cagayan along the West Philippine Sea as well as along the Pacific coastal towns in Isabela. Dr. Jovita Ayson, BFAR director for Cagayan Valley, said poaching and illegal fishing have been going on for years due to lack of patrol vessels to go after illegal fishers and poachers.en
