Bataan, Subic Fisherfolk Intensify Anti-Pollution Drive
MetadataShow full item record
To support the clean environment program, fisherfolk in the Subic Bay Area joined the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) in its advocacy against the use of plastics and other non-biodegradable products that pollute the environment. In the recent celebration of "Araw ng Mangingisda," members of the Subic Bay Integrated Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Management Council (SBIFARMC) said they have rallied to the call by the SBMA for a ban on plastics as their contribution to the cause of environmental protection and sustainable development. The SBIFARMC is an organization representing fishermen from communities in Subic Bay - the town of Moring in Bataan, municipalities of San Antonio and Subic in Zambales, and Olongapo City.
