Law enforcers deployed to protect 'Ludong'
MetadataShow full item record
As part of the government’s conservation effort, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in the region has deployed law enforcers to protect the most expensive fresh water species. BFAR Director Milagros Morales said that a group of law enforcement officers on board a patrol vessel are now on guard against catchers of Ludong (Cestraeus plicatilis) or President’s Fish along Cagayan River. Morales said the exorbitant market price of Ludong at P4,000 to P5,000 makes it attractive for fishers despite the dangers posed by rough weather that coincides with the Ludong spawning run.
