Benham Bank, the shallowest portion of the unexplored seamount, is one of the traditional fishing grounds of coastal dwellers on the northeastern coast of Luzon, according to Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) Director Asis Perez. However, the area is also "a hotspot for poachers, especially long-liners from neighboring countries," he added.

The government's National Payao Program in Benham Bank from 2013 to 2015, along with a tuna fisheries assessment last year, are part of government efforts to exercise control over Benham Rise, said Perez. "We have to proclaim to the world that this area is ours," he added.
Payao is the local term for fish aggregating devices made of palm fronds and other materials that attract schools of fish. Albacore tuna were the dominant species in 2015, while big-eye tuna were more bountiful in 2013, Perez said during a forum at the University of the Philippines (UP) last month co-sponsored by Oceana Philippines.

BFAR Director Asis Perez said the project will intensify measure to lessen poverty incidence in fishing communities and rally the protection and conservation of coastal resources in selected areas.

"Fishermen are among the poorest groups in the country with a poverty incidence of 41.4 in 2009. This is due to low coastal productivity, fish stock depletion, pollution, over fishing, poor access to basic services, high population density, inadequate post-harvest support, and lack of alternative source of income," Perez explained.
"Let us protect the coastal water, have enough fish biomass, which would result to better production and higher income," Perez said.
He cited the intensified protection at Visayan Sea, which resulted to increase in fish population from 2.3 mt to more than four mt per square kilometer.
