EtymologyTicao Island

Ticao Pass is the strait that separates Ticao Island from the Bicol Peninsula in the Philippines.[1] It connects the Burias Pass in the north with the Samar Sea in the south.

Along with the Burias Pass, the waters of the Ticao Pass are proposed to become a Marine Protected Area. It is home to a large marine diversity, but it also suffers from massive overfishing and poaching, as well as destructive blast fishing.[2]
