FRMD updates FLA

by Rosemarie P. Caballero

Butuan City (21 November) -- Some of the FLA areas in Caraga Region particularly in Hinatuan and Bislig, Surigao del Sur and Magallanes, Agusan del Norte was covered with CLOAs, and eventually titled.

With this, BFAR Caraga FRMD initiated a region-wide monitoring, evaluation and assessment of the status of this FLA areas. BFAR central office Legal Division joined the group in gathering evidences and other pertinent papers to really see the real situation of these areas. Those found out to be not in conformity with the law will be filled with cases in the proper court.

This area are previously covered with Fishpond Lease Agreement (FLAs) issued by the Department of Agriculture (DA) to qualified beneficiaries pursuant to Section 45, Republic Act No. 8550, otherwise known as the "Philippines Fisheries Code of 1998".

The higher court has already categorized the areas into Alienable and Disposable (A&D) for fishpond purposes. This means that the FLA areas should not be issued with CLOAs; instead, they should have remained until today as fishpond areas covered with existing FLAs.

On the other hand, there were some Fishpond Lease Agreement foreclosed by Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) which are now open for public bidding. To those who are qualified and interested they may inquire at the said Bank and please inform this Office. (BFAR-13/PIA-Caraga) [top]
