A closed season for commercial fishing of small pelagic fishes in the City of Calapan has been imposed starting last Wednesday.

The Calapan City council has approved on November 14 an ordinance that established a closed season for fishing starting November 15 until January 15.

“Sa ilalim ng naturang ordinansa ay pansamantalang ipagbabawal sa mga commercial fishers ang panghuhuli ng mga isdang kabilang sa small pelagic species simula Nobyembre 15, 2017 hanggang Enero 15, 2018,” the City Council said in a statement.

On November 13, the Council held a public hearing on the matter led by Councilor Charleston Valencia, SP-Committee Chair on Fisheries.

“Bagamat may dalawa lamang rehistradong commercial fishing boats sa lungsod at walang nasasakop na national waters (beyond 15 kms from the shoreline) ang lungsod ay mas mabuting maging handa sa anumang posibilidad ng paglabag sa batas-pangisdaan sa katubigan ng lungsod,” the council said in a statement.
