RP no longer world's 'fish power' due to climate change
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippine has lost its once lofty status as a major source of fish catch owing to destructive fishing methods and climate change, with the world's fish catch even teetering on the brink of collapse. Sen. Edgardo Angara told The STAR that from being the eight most productive source of fisheries in the world and third in the production of seaweeds and other aquatic plants, the country's once-lofty status has plummeted with the rapid decline in fish catches. Angara, a former agriculture secretary, said that during a recent speaking engagement before the Philippine Shrimp Industry (PhilShrimp) Congress, he sounded the alarm on the dwindling fish catches.
