Tagalog News: Industriya ng tuna sa Gensan nananatiling matatag

by DE Doguiles

Koronadal (12 February) -- Mismong kalipunan ng mga tuna industry sa General Santos City ang nagsasabing matatag pa rin ang industriya ng tuna sa Rehiyon sa gitna ng pinapatupad na dalawang taon na fishing ban sa high seas ng Dagat Pasipiko.

Sinabi ni Marfenio Tan, presidente ng SOCSKSARGEN Federation of Fishing and Allied Industries Incorporated, na sa tatlong sektor ng purse seine fisheries sa Gensan ang nangingisda sa high seas ng Pasipiko lang ang naapektuhan ng pagbabawal.

Paliwanag pa ni Tan, hindi naapektuhan ng fishing ban ang sektor na nangingisda sa Philippine Exclusive Economic Zone at ang mga mangingisdang binigyan ng lisensya ng Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) na mangisda sa international waters.

Patuloy pa rin umano ang apela ng fishing industry federation ng Socsksargen sa Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC) na payagan ang small at medium scale purse seiners sa bahagi ng Pacific high seas partikular sa Pocket 1 na pinagigitnaan ng Palau, Federated States of Micronesia, Papua New Guinea, at Indonesia.

Matatandaang simula noong Enero 1, pinagbababawal ng WCPFC ang pangingisda sa dalawang pockets ng Dagat Pasipiko ng dalawang taon para maprotektahan ang mga highly migratory fish tulad ng yellowfin tuna at bigeye tuna.

Samantala, upang mapangalagaan ang yamang dagat sa Philippine waters, tinataguyod ng federation at BFAR ang mahigpit at seryosong pagpapatupad ng Republic Act 8550 o Philippine Fisheries Code of 1998. (PIA 12) [top]
