Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA) participated in the Training Course on Fisheries Enforcement and Prosecution held in Bangkok, Thailand on September 26 to 30, 2022.

Conducted by the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA) of Bangkok together with the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the main objective of the training course was to provide legal and policy advisors and enforcement personnel from regional government fisheries and marine sectors with a general foundation of the legal tools to effectively monitor, enforce and successfully prosecute fisheries violations. 

In addition, the training also tackled enforcement and investigative techniques and procedures, including ship bridge and instrument training as well as import and landing inspections from fishing vessels, reefers, and container vessels. 

Ms. Marife F. Borja, Division Chief of Admin and Finance Services Division and concurrent Officer-in-Charge of Harbor and Market Operations Division of PFDA–Davao Fish Port Complex (PFDA-DFPC), served as the representative of the agency. 

25 participants from Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Timor-Leste joined the training course.
