Standard

MAMBAJAO, CAMIGUIN, April 8 (PIA) – The local government unit of Mambajao has received a level III Coastal Resource Management Certification (CRMC).


The certification provides framework in benchmarking the LGUs performance in the delivery of CRM as a basic service, as well as, a road map for planning future directions and initiatives.

“Our winning initiatives includes the delineation of its municipal waters, coastal zoning, fisheries management, coastal law enforcement, multi-institutional collaboration, revenue generation, and its campaign on the effective and efficient use of coastal/marine resources,” Municipal CRMP coordinator, Fe A. Bilara said.

The LGU also enacted and implemented several local legislations in support to CRM such as the Mambajao Comprehensive Fisheries and Coastal Resource Management Code and the White Island Marine Park Ordinance.

A total of 85-hectare protected areas, covering some seven fish sanctuaries were also established in the municipality to conserve and improve its marine biodiversity and maintain the ecosystem’s health and processes. (PIA 10)

  1. If you can just get your bantay dagat officers to implement the rules. I see infractions all the time, people using nets inside the delineated area. Once I asked an officer about it, his response was, “well I get very little pay so why bother.”
