DENR "Agos ng Buhay" Program to Set Stage in CALABARZON, Nationwide
"Healthy oceans, healthy people," the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) - Biodiversity Management Bureau (BMB) stresses the importance of healthy coastal and marine ecosystems in the lives of the people.
The Philippines, as an archipelago, is surrounded by bodies of water such as seas, bays, lakes, and rivers.
In the CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) Region can be found a number of water bodies like the South China Sea, Taal Lake and Pansipit River in Batangas; the Philippine Sea, Tayabas Bay, Lamon Bay and Ragay Gulf in Quezon; Laguna de Bay in Laguna and Rizal; and Manila Bay, which drains the watershed areas of the provinces of Laguna, Cavite and Rizal.
Fishing has always been an important source of livelihood for Filipinos, especially for communities in coastal areas. Fish is still the primary source of animal protein in the Philippines with annual per capita consumption at kilograms.
Unfortunately, some small and large-scale fishermen engage in unsustainable fishing practices that result in habitat degradation and fish stock depletion.
BMB records show that nearly 73% of coastal and marine ecosystems are degraded, with cost of inaction estimated at Three Billion Pesos (PhP 3B) annually.
