New dredge floaters ruin coral reef off Zambales
MetadataShow full item record
A new set of a dredge floater assembly that local fishermen found in the Zambales sea on Friday reached the coastline of Barangay Sto. Rosario here on Sunday morning, but not everyone was thrilled. Some residents were dismayed over the towing of the floaters along shallow waters, saying the device damaged a portion of a coral reef and blocked their way to the sea. “It’s wrong to tow these floaters to shallow waters. Look what happened—some of our coral reefs had been damaged,” fisherman Alvin Calimlim, 35, told the Inquirer.
