Fishing ban allows spawning
MetadataShow full item record
No one is allowed to catch sardines, mackerels and herrings at the Visayan Sea for three months. The "closed season," which lasts until Feb 15, 2016, will allow these fish species to breed, according to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR). Under the BFAR's Fisheries Administrative Order No. 167-3, the fishing ban aims to "increase the production" of the said fish species "in one of the country's major fishing grounds," said Edwin Javier, the agency's provincial field office head in Capiz.
