DA to act vs. illegal fishing
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Oceana has lauded the move of the Department of Agriculture to suspend local government unit officials for failure to stop illegal fishing.

Oceana, an international group advocating mainly for the protection of the oceans, is leading a relentless campaign to curb illegal fishing at Tañon Strait, the country's largest marine protected area that lies between Negros and Cebu islands.

In a statement yesterday, Oceana reiterated “the urgent need for science-based policies and strengthened law enforcement to protect critical marine habitats and important fishing grounds to bring back fisheries abundance in the country”.

Remollo vows to support
sports tourism endeavors

Dumaguete Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo yesterday vowed to support efforts to promote sports tourism in the city.

He made the commitment during a forum at a local hotel in the city, which featured tourism consultant and businessman Charles Lim of Selrahco Management and Consultancy Services, who will spearhead a sports tourism forum in the city on February 2.

Remollo said sports is, indeed, a tourism draw and Dumaguete City has already proven its worth in previous years to host large-scale sporting events and other competitions. .
