Fishermen appeal for systematic gov’t solution
MetadataShow full item record
The country’s fishing sector – beset by a series of oil price hikes and declining output over the past years – had sought for an “extensive and systematic” government solution. The appeal came from a group of small fisherfolks, who said they will be “at the losing end” if the country’s fisheries output will continue to go down. “The continued decline of fisheries output over the years obviously pose impacts to the small fishers as they are the subsector seen to have a low productivity,” Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (PAMALAKAYA) National Chairperson Fernando Hicap said.
