Zambales folk: Sino boats depleting our fish catch
MetadataShow full item record
Fishermen on Friday said at least 20 Chinese vessels have been anchored about 111 kilometers off San Antonio town in Zambales province since January and they blamed the mysterious nocturnal activities of the ships for their dwindling catch. “When we’re fishing at night, we could hear a loud sound underneath the waters near the area where these foreign ships are staying. They are disturbing our fishing ground,” said Jefrey Melchor, one of the fishermen who complained about the diminishing amount of fish and squid they were able to haul in daily.
