JULY 19, 2018-PIÑOL ACTS ON HIGH FISH PRICES IN BOHOL
TAGBILARAN CITY-Department of Agriculture(DA) Secretary Emmanuel Piñol vowed on Tuesday to help bring down the soaring high prices of fish in Bohol by increasing the fish supply in local markets. Boholanos have been reeling from the high prices of fish, a concern that has been taken up by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan in the past. Piñol revealed his plans to help bring down the high prices during the opening of the Sandugo Agri-Fair in a local mall in Tagbilaran.Piñol said he cannot understand why fish prices are unusually high in Bohol which is an island. He said he has met with the think tank at the DA to come up with a strategy to bring down fish prices.He also said that the long- term solution is to encourage Boholanos to go into fishing farming to help raise the fish supply in local markets.
