BFAR XI widens inspection on commercial fishing vessels
September 12, 2020
Mati City—Seven tuna handline fishing vessels in Mati City and one fish carrier in Gov. Generoso were subjected to ocular inspection and validation by BFAR XI CFVGL team.
This is to ensure compliance with the Fisheries Administrative Order (FAO) 198.
BFAR XI regularly conducts inspection to every commercial fishing vessel in Davao region prior to the renewal of their license and approval of their fishing support vessel application. This is part of the government’s effort in its fight to prevent, deter, and eliminate illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing activities.(IEC)
