MetadataShow full item record
They're stubborn. These are the words of Nestor Domenden, regional director of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) when asked why fishkills have been a recurring nightmare in Bolinao and Anda towns in western Pangasinan in the last 10 years. “They (milkfish growers) know where their fishing structures should be built, but they continued to disregard it,” Domenden says. A report from the office of the provincial agriculturist in Lingayen shows that 72 of the 75 fishkill-hit cages were built in the waters off Catubig Point in Barangay Tara up to Barangay Culang in Bolinao, while the rest, mostly bamboo pens, dotted the fishing area from Barangay Mal-ong to Barangay Awag and across the Kakiputan Channel to the island village of Siapar in Anda.
