Rody to ban fishing in Panatag lagoon
MetadataShow full item record
Filipinos can again fish at Panatag (Scarborough), but President Duterte will soon keep them out of the shoal’s lagoon when he declares it a marine protected area. Filipinos will still be allowed to fish outside the lagoon in the shoal, which a UN-backed arbitral court has declared as a common fishing ground. National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon Jr. told reporters here that the draft executive order may be submitted during the next Cabinet security cluster meeting.
