Overfishing in the Philippine Commercial Marine Fisheries Sector

Listed author(s):
  • Israel, Danilo C.
  • Banzon, Cesar P.

Recently, marine fisheries are threatened by the current rate of overfishing, which if unabated may lead to the collapse of the fisheries sector. Past studies have been limited in scope, providing analysis based on groupings of species while disregarding unemployment implications of reduction in overfishing. To address these gaps and to shed light on the issues cited are the concern of the paper. In addition, this hopes to contribute useful information for the management of commercial fisheries.
