A fisherfolk group has urged the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) to investigate a fish kill in the coastal waters of Cavite. Fernando Hicap, chairman of the Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (Pamalakaya), said the fish kill has affected the towns of Tanza and Rosario.
