In a Facebook post of BFAR-7, the two boxes of processed fishery products arrived at Mactan-Cebu International Airport on November 15 via connecting flight at Clark International Airport in Pampanga. 

The fishery products, which weighed at around 53 kilograms, was abandoned and were intercepted by the team from the BFAR-7 – FIQS and the Bureau of Animal Industry on Sunday afternoon. 

The procedures on fisheries quarantine at airports are necessary to prevent the entry or spread of foreign pests and diseases of fish and fishery products here in the country./dbs
