Fishermen from this town found an oceanographic instrument – a device for measuring seawater properties –with the mark “National Oceanographic Office, USA,” while fishing near the disputed Scarborough or Panatag Shoal in the West Philippine Sea on Friday. In a report to the Zambales Police Provincial Office, Chief Inspector Jude Bryan Maguddayao of Masinloc town police said three fishermen – Galley Godornes, 30; Reynaldo Mendoza, 30 and Joseph Asuque, 28 – found the yellow-colored device while fishing in the open sea and dragged it to the coastal village of Barangay Inhobol, where they live. Now in the custody of the provincial police in Camp Conrado Yap in Iba, Zambales, the oceanographic instrument is the second such device found near the disputed Scarborough Shoal in the West Philippine Sea.
