MetadataShow full item record
Around 25 hectares of two major lakes in Lake Sebu town in South Cotabato have been cleared of illegal structures and water lilies as part of a continuing local government-led clean-up program. Loida Villa, senior environment management specialist of the Provincial Environment Management Office (PEMO), said Monday the accomplishment was the result of the clean up activities conducted in Lakes Sebu and Seleton as of the end of June. Experts noted that the overcrowding of fish cages at the lake, the proliferation of water hyacinths and the use of commercial feeds by operators have caused its waters to deteriorate, triggering fish kills.
