Assessors Pedro Abadilla Jr. furthermore, Dominador Montemayor Jr. found the stingray meat, privately known as "pagi," after investigating the said market. Utilization of stingray meat is restricted by law. 

The stingrays were being sold by Maricar Noquillo, an inhabitant of Barangay Inayawan, Cebu City, who got the meat from Zamboanga. 

DVMF head Alice Utlang said this is the first occasion when that her investigators reallocated kilos of stingray meat from the Carbon Public Market during the current year. 

Beside the relinquishment of the meat, Noquillo is prohibited from selling in the Carbon Market and fined P1,000 as her first offense of abusing existing laws. 

The selling of stingrays is against City Ordinance 2496 which denies the selling and purchasing of stingrays, which was passed by the Cebu City Council a year ago. 

The said statute was supported by Councilor Eduardo Rama Jr. Under the punishment arrangement of the mandate, violators will pay a fine of not more than P5,000 or will be liable to not over one year in jail including the reallocation of the item.

The actualizing body of these two polices is the DVMF with the assistance of city's Bantay Dagat Task Force. 

Utlang said they will cover the seized stingrays inside DVMF's compound at the North Reclamation Area.

Controllers of DVMF will arbitrarily investigate different markets in the city for the exacting implementation of the current mandates and different laws.
