Policemen in Bato town apprehended a 32-year old fisherman who caught in the act of using a fine-mesh net to catch fish in Cabugao Bay in violation of a local ordinance.

PO2 John Paul Vega was responding to a call for assistance regarding illegal fishing at 9 A.M. of Oct. 19 when he espied Leonardo Hondrade, a resident of Cabugao, using the kilometer-long net. Also confiscated from him was about 20 kilos of assorted fish.

Using such nets, which catch small fishes, violated Sec. 25 of Municipal Ordinance 2000-002 of Bato.

Thirty minutes earlier in Binanuahan, construction worker Nerio Traqueña, 45, and fisherman Zaldy Taroy, 44, were also nabbed in similar fashion. The net was seized along with their paddle banca.
