StarScience: Saving Laguna de Bay 2
MetadataShow full item record
Water quality here was found to be second best at 77 percent, a passing mark. All water quality indicators were at acceptable levels except phosphate (63 percent), and chlorophyll a (zero percent). The fisheries score was second lowest at 43 percent owing to a low score for native fish species composition (37 percent). This bay is the present site of the lake’s fish sanctuary. A host of factors influences fish life, but many of these were not included in the assessment to come up with the EHRC. Knowledge is still wanting as to how strongly each of these might have contributed to a poor performance of the lake’s fisheries.
