Marine reserves in coastal areas sought
MetadataShow full item record
A lawmaker over the weekend vowed to re-introduce in the 16th Congress a measure seeking to establish marine reserves for aquatic resources in coastal provinces, cities and municipalities of the country. Rep. Marcelino Teodoro of Marikina City first filed the bill during the 15th Congress but the House Committee on Aquaculture and Fisheries failed to tackle the bill. The said bill seeks to amend Republic Act (RA) 7160, otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991.
