The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) will install buoys in the Philippine Rise (Benham Rise) on Wednesday, May 12, to mark the features in the country's eastern seaboard that are part of its exclusive economic zone.

The PCG will install the first three of 10 buoys in Philippine Rise situated 250 kilometers east of the northern coastline of Aurora province. The buoys were procured from the international marine aids company Mediterraneo Seņales Maritimas in Valencia, Spain.

With the buoys in place, the Philippine Rise on the eastern seaboard would be considered as a special protected zone, the PCG added. The buoys would also mark the designated exclusive food supply zone of the Philippines and would ensure safe navigation in the area.
