Sual Mayor Liseldo Calugay has ordered the removal of more than 400 fish cages in Cabalitian Bay.
The Pangasinan politiko said operators must remove their structures on or before the end of the year.
Caluagay explained the move is meant to rehabilitate the body of water.
The more than 400 fish cages for milkfish are located outside Sual’s mariculture zone park (MZP).
Sual’s MZP can only accommodate up to 750 fish cages.
Calugay warned that fish cages not removed by the end of the year will be demolished.
