The municipal government of Lake Sebu in South Cotabato is planning to declare a state of calamity due to another major fish kill that has seen P6.5 million worth of tilapia destroyed. Zaldy Artacho, Lake Sebu municipal agriculture officer, said Tuesday the fish kill started late last week in portions of the lake after its dissolved oxygen dropped to critical levels anew. Artacho said the phenomenon, known locally as “kamahong,” came after a week of sporadic heavy rains in the area.
