Gov't 'weak' in implementation of fisheries law
MetadataShow full item record
Top officials of the multinational environment group Oceana said the Duterte administration is “weak” in terms of the implementation of Fisheries Law, with the fisheries sector still one of the most vulnerable sectors in the Philippines. “The Philippines has good laws, but we are so weak in implementing it,” Oceana Vice President Gloria Estenzo Ramos said in a briefing when asked if the government is doing a good job in terms of regulating and protecting the Philippines’ coastal waters. Oceana is the only international non-government advocacy organization focused on marine conservation.
