Ralph Recto eyes creation of Department of Fisheries & Aquaculture
Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto said he is seeking to create a Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture.
The Batangas politiko said the Department of Agriculture has already a lot on its plate that’s why there is a need for a separate agency to handle the country’s fisheries industry.
“Pinag-aaralan rin natin ang pag-file ng bill na lilikha sa Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture upang masubaybayan ang tumataas na presyo ng isda,” Recto said.
“Sa ganitong paraan, mas madaling masolusyunan ang mga problemang may kinalaman sa fisheries at aquaculture,” he added.
Recto said the proposed new department will address the rise in fish prices and the development of new technologies related to fishing.
He said the deparment will also aim to increase fish production in the country.
