In a joint operation conducted by the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff (PCSDS) DMD Calamian, the Philippine National Police (PNP) Maritime Coron Station, and the Philippine Coast Guard, approximately 3000 kilograms of Giant Clam Shells were confiscated at Depelenged Island, Barangay Concepcion, Busuanga, Palawan on April 4, 2024.

The collaborative effort aimed to curb illegal activities concerning the harvesting and trade of endangered marine species. The confiscated Giant Clam Shells were reportedly under the possession of residents of the island.

Following the operation, the seized Giant Clam Shells are now temporarily in the custody of Barangay Concepcion, Busuanga, Palawan, pending further investigation and legal proceedings.
