Last Friday, the City Government of Maasin through our CSWD Office distributed cash assistance amounting to PHP 1,000 through Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) Program,
10 kilos of rice and goods to our Bilibol and Cabulihan fisherfolks today. With the increase in the number of fisheries laws violations, we took this opportunity as well to orient our fisherfolks
to our existing fishing and fishery ordinance and the Philippine Fisheries Code of 1998. We aim to reach out to our fisherfolks and let them understand how the fisheries laws are being enforced for them to be aware and well-informed.
Our fisheries laws are important much as our resources are. With our existing laws, we provide policies on sustainable use of fishery resources to meet the growing food needs of our population.
