OUTSTANDING BIOLOGICAL FEATURES

  • Davao Gulf is a feeding and breeding ground for small pelagics, and a seasonal migration site, breeding and nursery ground for large pelagics.
  • 11 species of cetaceans, marine turtles, whale sharks and other elasmobranchs, inhabit the Gulf. Seahorses are also found here.
  • Davao Gulf boasts 17 species of mangroves which serve as spawning grounds for demersal fish and resting grounds of migratory birds.

Issues

Strategies

Cutting for lumber, timber, firewood and settlement (e.g. Banaybanay, Carmen, San Isidro, Digos)

Prevalence of mangrove plantation intruders (e.g. Padada)

Illegal conversion of mangrove areas to fishponds

Spurious titling of mangrove areas

Denuded seagrass beds due to domestic waste and destructive fishing gears (obnoxious substances, beach seine, sud-sud.)

Coral bleaching due to pollution (siltation and agricultural waste)

Coral fragmentation/death due to destructive fishing gears (dynamite, compressor and muro ami) (e.g. Carmen, Tagum, Padada)

Gathering of corals for tourism purposes

Establish database and conduct IEC on key natural and sub-natural habitats.

Organize PO's and assign focal persons.

Coordinate with local officials/ and other concerned government agencies on coastal management.

Identify potential site for marine protected areas for corals

Watch and patrol, apprehend and file cases.
