Gov't urged to save its seas from overfishing
MetadataShow full item record
At least 13 fishing grounds in the Philippines have been heavily fished and the declining stocks will force local fishermen to go beyond the country's boundaries toward the Malaysian and Indonesian seas to look for catch, Greenpeace Southeast Asia said on Friday. Greenpeace ocean campaign Vince Cinches said the government must act immediately to save the Philippines seas "before it's too late" because Filipino fishermen have nowhere to go. "The security and safety of our fishers will be imperiled if we reach a point that there will be lesser fish in our seas, and there is an abundance of fish stocks outside our boundaries," Cinches said.
