Philippine fisheries dying
MetadataShow full item record
Philippine fishery production declined between 2010 and 2017. As a result, since 2010, the contribution of a fishery to agriculture growth has been negative. Caught fish retail prices increased faster in Metro Manila: galunggong rose by 30%from 2010 to 2016 versus pork which increased by 22%, dressed chicken by 16%, and bangus and tilapia by 17% through 2017. The decline in fishery production is largely a result of the destruction of coral reefs, which serve as habitat for marine organisms. Coral reefs are suffering despite long-term measures outlawing damaging fishing practices.
