vs. Visayan Sea illegal fishers
ILOILO – The Iloilo provincial government is reiterating its call to all chief executives and agencies concerned to be active in clearing the Visayan Sea of illegal fishers.
Provincial Administrator Raul Banias, in a press release, lamented that it seems that only the Iloilo Provincial Bantay Dagat Task Force is sustaining its operation and issued the statement after the 34 positive operations of the task force more than a month after their members were reshuffled April 15.
Of the operations, 21 involved the use of trawl, 10 were cast nests, and three were Danish seine of two super hulbot and one modified. The latest operation was on May 14 when 22 fishermen from Barangay Bacal, Carles, Iloilo, were arrested and charged for using Danish seine, the press release said.
