Local officials spearhead anti-illegal fishing drive in Surigao del Norte

Local government unit officials have spearheaded anti-illegal fishing drive in an effort to preserve the fish sanctuary in the northeastern tip sea-line in the region, particularly in the “paradise island” of Dapa, Siargao Islands, Surigao del Norte.

Surigao del Norte solon Rep. Francisco T. Matugas and Dapa Mayor Peter “Boy” Ruaya, along with the Association of Barangay Council (ABC) led by its president Dionesio P. Ruaya, swooped down at the seawaters of Hono and apprehended alleged illegal fisherman.

The Police Regional Office 13 (PRO 13), identified the apprehended suspect as Ricky Espuerta alias "Bebot", 34, and resident of the said place.

PRO 13 report said the suspect was caught in the act possessing allegedly illegally caught fish at said place.

Confiscated from the suspect's possession were one unit paddleboat, other fishing paraphernalia and dynamited fish locally known as "Atotay" and "Sili", police report said.

The suspect was brought to the Barangay Captain of Barangay Consolacion of that same town for initial investigation and subsequently turned over to Dapa Municipal Police Station for proper disposition and filing of appropriate charges in court, police report added.

Rep. Matugas and Mayor Ruaya already mobilized all concerned government agencies in putting an end the alleged illegal fishing activity in the island and other seawaters in the province. (PNA)
