Greenpeace, BFAR conduct fishing license checks at the port of Pio Duran, Albay

Greenpeace and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) vowed to end illegal fishing, which they said was the “scourge of the Philippine seas.”

The warning was made as BFAR enforcers, accompanied by activists from the Greenpeace ship, Esperanza, conducted fishing license checks this morning at the port of Pio Duran in Albay Province, around 500 kilometers south of Manila.
