BFAR Cagayan Valley bans fishing of famous ‘ludong’

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Philippines- The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in the Cagayan Valley region has begun implementing the ban on the catching of the “ludong” fish to allow it to multiply.

BFAR Administrative Circular No. 247 declares a closed season on the catching of the high-value fish.

The closed season, “a period during which the taking of specified fishery species is prohibited in a specified area in Philippine waters”, has been set from Oct. to Nov. 15 each year.

Covered by the ban is the entire stretch of the Cagayan River, including its tributaries, headwaters, and watersheds along with the Abra River and its tributaries traversing Ilocos Sur (Santa River) and the Cordillera region.

BFAR Regional Director, Dr. Milagros Morales, said law enforcement officers will be deployed to carry out the ban, as well as to hold an intensified information, education, and communication campaign.

The promotion of the circular is one of the highlights of the “Oplan Sagip Ludong”, an inter-agency project spearheaded by BFAR Cagayan Valley. PNA
