ILOILO CITY, Philippines — The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) will assess the fishery resources of Guimaras following reports of low fish catch in the island province’s municipal waters, the agency’s Western Visayas director said recently.

Drusila Esther Ong-Bayate said fisherfolk associations in Nueva Valencia, San Lorenzo and Sibunag, which had been affected by the oil spill a year ago, informed them of the dwindling fish catch.

“We received a lot of reports of the low fish catch in Guimaras. In order to gauge and verify the information, the BFAR will conduct a municipal fisheries assessment,” said Ong-Bayate in a recent interview.
