Biodiversity in Samar Sea
MetadataShow full item record
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has warned that by 2050, catches of main fish species could decline by up to 40 percent in the tropics, where livelihoods, food and nutrition security strongly depend on the fisheries sector. In the Samar Sea, however, the situation is much more urgent. In the last 30 years, fish catch has dropped from 8kg per day to less than 3.5kg, according to the Samar Sea Fisheries Management Plan of 2016.
