SMC, Bantay Dagat team up to protect the seas, sustain livelihoods

Republika

San Miguel Corporation has partnered with “Bantay Dagat” (Sea Guardian) in Calatagan, Batangas as part of its corporate-wide initiative to promote healthy seas and ensure sustainable livelihood for small fishing communities, especially in areas where it operates.


The conglomerate has donated patrol boats to the Calatagan community task force that enlists fisherfolk in coastal villages to help enforce coastal and fisheries laws–particularly against the use of illegal fishing methods and illegal equipment.


A boat each was also given to the Municipality of Calatagan and the Philippine Air Force based in Batangas to boost patrolling in the area.


SMC also made a larger donation of 19 motorized boats for local fisherfolk groups, to be used primarily for their livelihood.
