Law enforcers also behind illegal fishing in Lingayen Gulf
There must be something about the coastal town of San Fabian in Pangasinan which attracts tourists, beach lovers, sea creatures and even unscrupulous fishermen. All are welcome, Mayor Constante Agbayani said, except fishermen who come with illegal fishing gear, explosives and other destructive means to catch fish that abound in the town’s waters. Beachgoers and tourists are lured by the calm and shallow water while sea creatures, like whale sharks (butanding), regularly come to graze whenever the Lingayen Gulf is teeming with tiny fish and shrimps.
