Davao Gulf fisherfolk take advantage of the closed fishing season by mending and repainting their boats on Monday (June 3, 2024). The June to August restriction is being implemented by the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources and the Department of the Interior and Local Government to allow small pelagic fishes to replenish and meet the demands in the region.
