the Philippine chapter of the world's largest marine conservation group stresses on Tuesday that strict enforcement of the country's fisheries law is the key to ensuring a sustainable fisheries sector that would lead to food and economic security. Atty. Gloria Estenzo Ramos, vice president of Oceana Philippines, said that with the Philippines ranking as the 14th largest fish producing and consuming country worldwide, achieving food and economic security for Filipinos means that protecting and conserving the country's marine and aquatic resource and sustainable fisheries must be achieved. According to data from Oceana, the Philippines is the center of marine biodiversity and its waters are home to richly diverse ecosystems unrivaled in the world.
