52 BFAR personnel deputized as fish wardens

Tuguegarao City (April 17) -- The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) Regional Office, in collaboration with the Regional Fisheries Training Center, has trained and deputized 52 of its employees as fish wardens to strengthen its efforts to curb illegal fishing in the region.

BFAR regional director Jovita Ayson, said the new deputy fish wardens (DFWs) are in a better position to enforce fishery laws because of their knowledge on various fishery matters.

“Our technical staff are usually on field where they can encounter illegal fishers, if not, local residents can report illegal fishing incidents directly to them,” Ayson said.

Ayson said the new DFWs are seen as “fresh tool to fight a perennial problem.”

Ayson explained that the Local Government Units need to have stronger stance on illegal fishing having jurisdiction on municipal waters as mandated in RA 7160 and RA 8550.

Deputy Fish Wardens are usually local residents/barangay officials authorized and appointed by BFAR to enforce anti–illegal fishing laws, rules and regulations after completion of 3-day training course. Appointment is valid for three years.

Ayson said that the intervention is pursuant to Section 124 of RA 8550. (BFAR/PIA Cagayan) [top]
