Solon Seeks Probe on Rampant Harvesting of Crablets

A Party-list lawmaker is calling for a congressional inquiry on the reported rampant harvesting and sale of crablets as exotic food delicacy, which has resulted in the alarming decline in the harvest of mature mud crabs. In filing House Resolution 2587, Rep. Angelo Palmones, (Party-list, AGHAM) said rampant harvesting and sale of crablets hinder the sustainability of mature crabs for food and livelihood. Palmones cited that a 2009 report from the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) that exports of crabs, in its live or processed form, accounts for 5.8 percent of the year's total export value in fisheries produce. The study, Palmones said shows that crab production is a viable means of livelihood for some of the coastal areas in the country thus; this reported rampant activity of early harvesting for minimal amount will disrupt the flow of income in an area where crab produce is one of its main sources of income. Palmones said several local government units have i…

He is a descendant of Don Juan Rodolfo of Almeria, Spain who went to the Philippines in the 18th Century and married the daughter of Datu Bantog who was then one of the Tribal Chieftains in Catanduanes in order to put t…
