Gov’t pushes local management of fish sanctuaries for sustainability
MetadataShow full item record
To ensure sustainability of marine resources, the Philippine government will pursue preferential access for small-scale fishermen in managing coastal fishing grounds and marine sanctuaries. These measures will be implemented across municipalities on a national scale, which includes territorial use rights in fisheries, MPAs, and seasonal closures for selected species. The plan also serves as guiding framework for investment programming of the government, including projects that require official development assistance.
