Foreign fishers encroaching in Aurora

from inquirer.net by Tonette Orejas:

Fishing vessels reportedly owned by Japanese, Korean and Taiwanese companies have been encroaching on portions of the Philippine Sea in Aurora to fish for tuna, a senator said here.

“They come during the January-July tuna season. They’re the ones gaining from our resources,” said Sen. Edgardo Angara at the launch of the Aurora extension office here on Friday.

The haul could not be ascertained but Angara said eight fishing vessels, some with canneries, are seen almost daily during those months.
