Bolinao Fishermen and Fish dealers association (BOFFIDA) took matters into their hands and decided to organize volunteers composed of ordinary fishermen that soon embarked into a successful crusade in stopping illegal fishing. These vigilante fishermen and their families where housed into a fortress like settlement called Pescador Village where the resort and the hotel stands today
