Fishkill blamed on factory wastes
MetadataShow full item record
Two government agencies are investigating claims linking the fishkill in four coastal villages in Bais City and the town of Manjuyod in Negros Oriental to the operations of two factories in the areas. The fishkill has brought income loss to at least 200 fishing families in the city and town. Employees and officials of the Environmental Management Bureau of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Central Visayas and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in Central Visayas took separate water samples from the North Bais Bay where the fishkill occurred.
