MANILA, October 19, (PIA)—To make marine resources sustainable, the government opens up option for fishermen to sell their catch which may be on the stage of spawning.

Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) through Leo Bongalos said the government is offering to buy bycatch which have been found to be spawning, the price is that of its market value. 

The move, according to the BFAR is in support of the effort to keep the these resources into producing their offsprings by keeping them in laying pens to keep these fish or crustaceans into keeping its young. 

This too as the government also implements close and open seasons for fish and crustaceans who are known to spawn in specific periods, Bongalos explained.
The government authorities have asked fishermen to release back to the sea whatever it is that they catch that shows signs of being pregnant or in the process of laying eggs.

But, at times when the gathering is low, and the only ones they get are spawning, there is always thus great chance that this becomes part of the fisherman’s meal.

We urge fishermen to turn over their spawning catch to the government laying pens in Sinandigan Ubay and in Calape, Bongalos appealed.

According to the BFAR, buying these based on the current market price earns for the fisherman and at the same time, allows the fish to complete the laying.

The BFAR however buys only those which are showing signs of good health and is still capable of hatching the eggs.

In the list of most common resource buy-outs are siganids and blue crabs, says BFAR Bohol.

The practice is also now becoming an innovation, coming after the sardines closed season implemented in the Visayan seas, BFAR, who talked about fish conservation explained. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
