THE PHILIPPINES - the negotiations for an extension of the country's bilateral fishing agreement with Indonesia still hanging, fishery officials urged the local tuna industry sector to pursue the proposed yellowfin tuna farming project along the Sarangani Bay. Sani Macabalang, regional director of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in Region 12, said tuna farming is currently the most viable alternative in ensuring a stable supply of tuna for the area over the next decade.
