League, Ocean team up to stop illegal fishing
MetadataShow full item record
The League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP) and Oceana, the world’s largest international marine advocacy organization, entered into a partnership to stop, fight and deter illegal fishing in municipal waters nationwide. A pioneering online reporting, Karagatan Patrol, was likewise launched in encouraging citizens to report illegal fishing activities in the Karagatan Patrol Facebook group. Commercial fishing is banned in municipal waters under the Fisheries Code, as amended in 2015, which has stringent measures to fight illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU)’ fishing, such as vessel monitoring technology for all commercial fishing vessels from 3.1 gross tonnage and beyond.
