Eleven coastal LGUs of the province were evaluated for the Fisheries Compliance Audit (FishCA) initial online table assessment on June 8-10, 2021 via Zoom Meetings.
The LGUs were assessed by the Manila Bay Fisheries Compliance Audit Regional Validation Team composed of DILG, DENR, BFAR and Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Politics (PPCRP).
FishCA is an assessment tool developed and implemented to monitor the compliance of coastal LGUs to pertinent provisions of the Philippine Fisheries Code, which stipulates the responsibilities of LGUs in the management of their respective city/municipal waters.
The audit validated the submitted documents and assessed the LGUs' implementation of fisheries laws and other related policies.
The regional top-performing LGUs will receive cash incentives on the final assessment on June 18, 2021 and will advance in the national level validation.
