BFAR-2 receives two patrol boats

Tuguegarao City (April 28) -- The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) RO2 is now capable and ready to conduct monitoring and surveillance activities against poachers and illegal fishers along the coastal waters of the region.

This was disclosed by director Jovita Ayson who said that BFAR-RO2 recently received 2 patrol boats from their Central Office, said to be of best quality in terms of speed and equipment.

The boats have a speed of 20knots per hour and state of the art communication equipment and facilities and more powerful than that of the fishing vessels used by the Taiwanese with a speed of 10knots per hour.

In the past, BFAR patrol boats fail to pursue poachers because their vessels were more powerful leaving behind the BFAR patrol boat tailing after them.

This time, Ayson is confident that more poachers will be apprehended with the use of the newly acquired patrol boats.

She also warned that violators will face the punishment and penalties required the law.

On the other hand, Capt. Nueras, Deck Officer of one of the patrol boats said the arrival of the boats were timely for the conduct of surveillance activities by BFAR and partner agencies come July.

This is the month when Taiwanese fishing vessels frequent the Philippine waters taking advantage of the bad weather and rough seas, Nueras said.

With the 2 powerful boats surely poaching and illegal fishing by foreign nationals will be put on halt, he added. (PIA Cagayan) [top]
