MetadataShow full item record
The government is a keeping its 4% growth projection for fish production this year despite recent cases of fish kill in Pangasinan and the Taal Lake, saying that losses from those incidents were not enough to change its forecast. Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) Assistant Director Benjamin Felipe S. Tabios, Jr. said in a telephone interview yesterday that the government has set a 5.36-million-metric-ton (MT) target for fisheries production this year, nearly 4% more than the 5.16 million MT produced a year ago. The government set this year's target last January, Mr. Tabios said.
