EU/PHILIPPINES: EU bans certain aquaculture exports from the Philippines
The European Union has banned certain fishery exports from the Philippines due to suspicions of harmful chemical residues.
Manila was told the ban would come into force from 3 July, and would remain in place while the EU determines if there are residues of chloropenical or antibiotic substances in Philippine exports, according to Malcolm Sarmiento, director of the Bureau of Fisheries.
He insisted the ban was only temporary. "Hopefully, we will see the lifting of the suspension of our aquaculture exports to the EU by end of July," he said.
Sarmiento added that the Philippines has assured the European Commission that no harmful substances are used in the country's aquaculture industry, reported Agence France-Presse.
