Can't go to Scarborough? Nolcom offers own fishing sanctuaries
MetadataShow full item record
Soldiers are putting up fish sanctuaries off Zambales so that Filipino fishermen would not have to go the disputed Scarborough Shoal, a rich fishing ground which China gained control of in 2012. Lt. Gen. Gregorio Pio Catapang, commander of the military's Nothern Luzon Command, said the fish sanctuaries which are locally known as "payao" are being established in coordination with the Department of Agriculture. Catapang said the unit involved in the effort is the Naval Forces Northern Luzon which is under the operational control of the Tarlac City-based Nolcom.
