MetadataShow full item record
The government will implement a 3-month moratorium against fishing round scad (galunggong) in North Eastern Palawan starting mid-November in line with the government’s program for sustainable utilization and management of the country’s aquatic resources. Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala said that the National Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Management Council has approved the three-month moratorium on galunggong fishing in the province of Palawan following study on migration pattern and to give way to the fish species’ spawning period. “The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources will oversee the implementation of the fishing ban starting November 15, 2015 to February 15 the following year,” Alcala said.
