Fish cages crowding Laguna's Sampaloc Lake next targey on LLDA demolition list
MetadataShow full item record
The government is now targeting to dismantle illegal fish cages in Sampaloc Lake, one of this city's popular seven interconnected lakes and a major tourist attraction in Laguna province. The Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA), which has jurisdiction over the Laguna de By region, issued a new set of guidelines that essentially reduces the aquaculture area in the 102.66-hectare Sampaloc Lake. The LLDA has been leading massive demolitions of fish pens in the 90,000-ha Laguna de Bay on orders of President Duterte to rehabilitate the Laguna de Bay region.
