MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) plan to implement a number coding or tagging of up to 2,400 pieces of small pelagic fishes like galunggong, hasa-hasa and tunsoy in the waters of Palawan and Manila Bay under a joint research program. The number coding or tagging would be part of a sustainable management plan to conserve 50 percent of the Philippines' marine resource. According to Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) director Malcolm Sarmiento, the program would involves the insertion of special number-coded yellow tags at the base of the dorsal fin of individual fish.
