'Invasion': Local fishers lament inaction on 'illegal fishing' in Cauayan
MetadataShow full item record
Fishermen in Cauayan, Negros Occidental decried their municipal government's lack of action on what they claimed to be "illegal incursions" of big-time fishing operators in their municipal waters. Ramon Gregas, vice chair of the Cauayan Fisherfolk Federation, yesterday said big commercial fishing operators from Hinigaran have been intruding into their once-bountiful fishing grounds since 2006-and Cauayan officials were doing nothing about it. Gregas and other officials of the 1,500-strong organization yesterday met with Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. to ask for help.
