National Search for Outstanding Coastal Community Malinis at Masaganang Karagatan (MMK) (CLEAN AND PLENTIFUL OCEAN)
The MMK program of the DA-BFAR aims to promote fisheries protection and conservation, centers on the significance of sustainably managing our fisheries and aquatic resources, and promotes stakeholder engagement to the cause of resource protection and conservation. The Search for Malinis at Masaganang Karagatan aims to recognize outstanding initiatives and contributions of coastal municipalities/cities to sustainable fisheries development. This program will indirectly support SDG 14.2 to sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems and SDG 14.4 which aims to effectively regulate harvesting and end overfishing, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and destructive fishing practices.
