Dagupan City Mayor Belen Fernandez on January 9 warned fishermen to comply with the city ordinance on the installation of fish cages.
The Pangasinan politiko met with the Pederation ng mga Mangingisda sa Dagupan City (PEDMANDACI) and explained to them the rationale of the fishing ordinance.
Fernandez said fishermen must first apply a permit before installing 7×10 fish cages.
She said fishermen should help in maintaining the environment.
“They have to strictly apply for an ALA permit by the OSBC. They should help keep our river clean,” Fernandez said.
