Panguil Bay cleared of illegal fishing structures
MetadataShow full item record
Panguil Bay, a rich fishing ground in Mindanao, has been cleared of sanggab or filter nets, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) said yesterday. Sanggab is a stationary fishing gear made of fine screen and conical bags to capture fish. Its use has reduced fish and shellfish harvest in the bay. Panguil Bay, which sprawls across Lanao del Norte, Zamboanga del Sur and Misamis Occidental, hosts various indigenous species such as tiger prawn, shrimp, mud crab and windowpane oyster.
