MetadataShow full item record
Fishermen are towing a kilometer-long dredge floater assembly, hoping to bring it to shore today, after they found it drifting at sea several kilometers from Iba, Zambales, on Friday night. At least 30 fishermen from Barangay Sto. Rosario in Iba began towing the floater assembly on Saturday, according to Efren Medrano, chair of the Lanao-Bangan Fishermen’s Association. The floater assembly was similar to those spotted drifting some 5.5 kilometers from the town of Cabangan, Zambales, on July 24. The first set of floaters spanned 1,000 meters long and bore Chinese markings.
