MetadataShow full item record
The three-month fishing ban off Zamboanga Peninsula has greatly contributed to the increase in the population of sardines in the region, according to the Department of Agriculture. Earlier this week, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources lifted the fishing ban in the waters off Zamboanga. Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol said there was a steady increase in the catch of Sardinella lemuru, or tamban, in the area due to the fishing ban.
