MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Agriculture (DA) secretary William Dar on Friday underscored the need for stronger measures on the conservation and management of the fisheries sector. One of the measures is the continuous implementation of the "closed fishing season" to give time for fis species such as sardines, herrings, and mackerels to spawn and increase their population. "We must preserve our treasured marine resources for sustainability as they impact on waters outside the EEZ (exclusive economic zone) such as the Coral Triangle," he said.
