Gov Garcia launches anti-illegal fishing task force
Bataan Governor Albert Garcia on June 6 has launched an anti-illegal fishing task force to protect the province’s marine ecology.
The Bataan politiko tasked Bataan Police Provincial Director Senior Superintendent Benjie Silo to implement the project.
This includes full enforcement of the law, maximizing the provincial government’s helicopter, communications systems, and coordination with other concerned agencies.
Garcia said preventing illegal fishing will ensure food security in the province.
“If we will not stop illegal fishing, there will come a time that our environment and marine ecology will be completely destroyed, that our fishes and other sea products will not be sustainable for our people,” Garcia said.
