The fisherfolk of Lake Palakpakin are organized in a government-assisted organization called Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Management Council (FARMC).
Of these fisherfolk, 87 or 45.8% attend the monthly FARMC meeting.
In the March 2016 meeting of Lake Palakpakin's FARMC, the fisherfolk exchanged thoughts and opinions on recent plans of LLDA to enforce the 10% maximum cage area and a modular arrangement of fish cages to facilitate monitoring of fish cages and easy detection of unregistered fish cages.
FARMC officers and members are ambivalent about the enforcement of the 10% maximum cage area.
The extent of the problem is manifested by the need to do weekly lake cleaning operations by FARMC members.
In the third case, again the same fish cage operator provides working capital for the operations of four fish cages taken care of by another relative who is a very active officer of FARMC, both lake and city chapters.
