The body discussed the project updates, among others is the implementation of mangrove reforestation and efforts to widen the extent of fishing area demarcated as a no-fishing zone, which coastal ecosystem are strictly protected and which area requires that fishing activities within Talim Bay need to be regulated. The LIMPAC takes the lead in overseeing and in setting policy directions for the of Coastal Resource Management (CRM) project in Talim bay.
Highlighting the activity was the discussion and agreement reached to sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the local officials of Barangay Binubusan, another CRM project area in the municipality of Lian and the Lian Fisher Folk Association for mangrove sea grass protection.
The Environment and Natural Resources Office key staffer regularly inspects the mangrove in keeping with the project’s goal to help the fishing community conserve, protect and sustainably utilize Talim bay’s marine resources through the institutionalization of management options, among others.
