MetadataShow full item record
The city government last week began dismantling illegal fishing structures in its river systems to demonstrate that it was serious in enforcing its fishery ordinance. "It's now or never," said Mayor Benjamin Lim, who led some 50 city fishery officials and law enforcement teams in the dismantling operations that started near the mouth of Pantal River. Emma Molina, city agriculture officer, said about 300 illegally built fish pens and other structures were still in place.
