This means that fishery and environmental laws are not being implemented and there is general neglect of natural resources within the bay. as a result, there is overfishing using illegal methods and severely degradated resource base resulting further to the lowering of the volume of fish catch.

It will entail the following components: research, community organizing, supplemental livelihood, environmental education, and legal and institutional arrangements.

Long-Term Impact
